Singing in the City 2017 is back!

Want to join our incredible line up?

On Sunday 16 July the Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre’s famous Great Hall will play host to a FREE singing and wellbeing extravaganza Singing in the City. This event has been developed for health and care staff, patients, carers and the public to encourage greater public engagement and understanding of health and wellbeing. The 2017 event will bring together a multitude of NHS, workplace and community choirs to showcase their work to each other and the public in order to encourage new people to get involved in singing. Singing in the City reflects the value placed on singing as a vehicle to promote both community and workplace wellbeing as well as supporting effective public engagement around health.

Singing in the City 2017 is a key element of a collaborative regional learning campaign now known as Learning Matters in Health and Care. Led by Voluntary Sector North West (VSNW) - the voluntary sector network for the region - this campaign brings partners and collaborators together from across the healthcare sector. Learning Matters is delivered in partnership with Health Education England (HEE) - the workforce development arm of the NHS working across the North West.
