In light of the situation regarding Covid-19, the Festival Committee 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.

Singers' Platform

The object is not to defeat a rival, but to pace each other on the road to excellence
H. Walford Davies

This is an initiative in the David Clover Festival of Singing and is intended to give the opportunity to singers already studying at universities and conservatoires, to postgraduates, and to those being privately tutored, to continue the development of their art with substantial award money. Winners in the past have been offered paid engagements with choirs in Yorkshire and Derbyshire.
