Saturday is a jam-packed day of singing, choreography and musicianship workshops followed by a big celebration concert featuring some of Ireland’s best-loved gospel choirs on Saturday night. Workshops cater to all levels of experience, there’s something for everyone.

Sunday starts with a morning gospel service followed by a huge afternoon of performances and more workshops in Mountjoy Square Park including a special collaborative workshop with Dublin rockers Delorentos, a high-energy Youth Choir Workshop with Volney Morgan and Craig Lees takes Tina’s ‘Simply the Best‘ to new musical heights in the afternoon Pop-Up Choir workshop.
