LABBS Convention

Bournemouth
25th - 27th October 2024

 

Our 2024 Convention will be held at Bournemouth International Centre.

Registration will open in May.

 
We are planning for a full convention experience including contests, shows and fringe events/marketplace.

This event will provide opportunity to reconnect with friends and fellow singers for a HUGE celebration of our community and hobby. 
 
There will be full quartet semi and finals contest rounds as usual, for qualifying quartets from Prelims, including Mixed Quartets in collaboration with BABS and SA Reg31, as well as the full chorus contest, with opportunities for non-competing choruses to perform to the most supportive audience anywhere.

Come back soon for more details of the schedule, other activities taking place and special guests.


What is Convention?

Convention is an annual opportunity for all members, family, and friends to get together.  It is essentially a chance for quartets and choruses to compete in a supportive and friendly way and is often a riot of colour and complex choreography.

In addition to competition, Convention also includes a schedule of education sessions - LABBS FRINGE - led by our own education team, often supported by external educators and our VIP guests.  All of this is topped off with two fabulous shows, showcasing our new champions and amazing guests.
 
As if that wasn't enough, each evening sees an opportunity to Afterglow - a traditional end to any barbershopping day when singers and guests meet to chat and sing until the early hours - with old friends and new.

The event is open to all, with the opportunity to drop in for a day or be immersed in both competition and education sessions for a full fun-packed 3 day weekend.
