The opening event on Friday evening Oct 9th features seven barbershop choirs in competition - should be a great show! They start at 8.30pm at Meols Cop School - some seats still available at £3 each in advance - apply by email to or £4.00 on the door.

The Festival runs all that weekend with a variety of amateur talent in music speech and drama adjudicated to international standards. This is a forum for people between 6 and 86 to display and develop their talents in a competitive setting and is worthy of local support.
