In light of the ever-changing situation regarding Covid-19, the Festival Committee have decided (in the best interest of our competitors, staff and volunteers) to cancel the 2021 Festival.

We have begun to plan for the 2022 Festival and look forward to welcoming you then.
Further information will be posted here.

David Clover Festival Friends

The David Clover Festival continues to be an event of high standing and credibility in the eyes of discerning musicians in and around the City of Sheffield and nationally. It has also proved itself a worthy vehicle of encouragement and support for young singers; internationally famed singers and teachers have associated themselves with this festival. However, the organisation and administration of this event is increasingly difficult to finance and the City of Sheffield Teachers' Choir is looking towards other musically interested people for help and support. You can help by becoming a 'Friend' for a minimum of £25.

Annual subscriptions to the Festival Friends are available in various categories. Each category entitles the subscriber to:

  • Free admission, and their guest(s), to all Festival sessions
  • Receive a free programme at the Festival on production of the Friends membership card
  • Have their name acknowledged in the Festival programme unless otherwise requested by the subscriber

The various categories are:

  • Personal Membership - a minimum of £25 for the subscriber and 1 guest
  • Family Membership - a minimum of £35 for the subscriber and 3 guests
  • Corporate, Organisation or Group Membership - a minimum of £50 for 6 people, or a minimum of £75 for 7-10 people.

Any Personal Member, or a member of a Family or Group, who is a tax payer, can gift-aid their subscription which would allow the Festival to reclaim income tax on your donation.
