The event will open with a live welcome and introduction to everyone from hosts Kim Burley Jones and John Sinclair on behalf of the organisers.

First, a performance by the children of The Shaftesbury School Steel Band ……

followed by a welcome from Leicester City Council.

Next enjoy a warm up, with vocal and physical exercises to get our voices and bodies set up to burst into song.

You might like to join in a song performed by the Leicester Sing for Water Choir in 2011 – a reminder of what the event has always looked like.

Now enjoy and sing along with Tann-I Browne, who has opened this event for many years with tributes to Bob Marley.

And here’s a performance of Siya Hamba by Red Leicester Choir.

Now for the first GROUP SING – Pokarekare Ana, led by Jane Bursnall, MD of Red Leicester Choir, Sing to Breathe Easy, The Square Mile Choir and others.

This will be followed by a song from Leicester Amika Choir

Now for the second GROUP SING – The River, led by Della Cohen, MD of Leicester Amika Choir

Time to reflect on the reason we are gathering to raise funds. Here’s a video provided by WaterAid – see the real and lasting difference that access to clean water and sanitation will make to people in Malawi.

Now enjoy a performance by the children of ‘The Brass of the Saff’ who supported this event at the Riverside Festival in 2019.

Enjoy another GROUP SING – Long Walk to Freedom led by Della Cohen, MD of Leicester Amika Choir
