We are excited to announce that a Festival of Choirs will take place in Gorey, from Friday 11 May- Sunday 13 May 2018.

The Festival will run over three days with 20 choirs consisting of singers ranging in ages from four to 80  performing in four different venues. The Festival Committee is delighted to welcome Gorey Municipal District as a sponsor of the event in 2018.

The objectives for the Festival are to fundraise for the Wexford Hospice Homecare Service by showcasing the musical talent of people from the Wexford and to provide a forum where choirs can come together to sing and socialise in a non-competitive event.

In 2018, a new objective is to try to encourage people who have never sung before to come to a singing class in the Gorey Council Building on Saturday, 12 May.

Wexford Hospice Homecare Service has been in existence for over 25 years and provides home care nursing and a support service for people who have been diagnosed with terminal illness, so that they can live as full a life as possible in their own home. All funds raised at the Festival of Choirs 2018 will go directly to the charity.
