About

The Narberth A Cappella Voice Festival was set up in 2008 with an aim to bring the appeal of a cappella to as wide an audience as possible with fun and friendly performances, workshops for all abilities and events by highly acclaimed and popular performers.

The festival is unique as it pushes the boundaries of traditional a cappella singing and allows the audience to experience different cultures and singing styles, featuring traditional and non-traditional a cappella artists from around the world.

Previous acts have included: the South African Zulu Male Choir, The Sons of Pitches, Cordydd, Camilo Menjura, Seimon Morris, Michael Deason-Barrow, Black Voices, Enkelit, The Swingle Singers, Caryl Parry Jones, Juice& Majiker, The Boxettes, The London Bulgarian Choir, The Perunika Trio, Durga Ramakrshnan and Lina Leon.

Alongside the professional concerts, we also offer lots of opportunities for the community to get involved with a varied programme of workshops. In 2016, we introduced a new intergenerational project, called Côr Pawb (Everybody’s Choir). This project, organised by our Cheerful Project staff, brought 170 people, aged 7-97, from local choirs and schools together for an evening concert to launch the festival. This year they will create a magical community celebration of singing, with a delicious feast to accompany it.
