The County of Song programme will establish a group of cultural and singing group partners to coordinate high quality vocal concerts, festivals, training and workshop opportunities across the county. This will be presented as a programme for 2024 to publicise the breadth of the county’s singing offer. Workshops offered will include support for choirs and singing groups in areas like accessing funding and marketing their work. 

There’s more to come soon on the County of Song programme, but you can already get involved in a singing event hosted by Lancaster Arts in February celebrating the Mill Race area of the city:


FLOOD – A Song of the Mill Race

The Mill Race in Lancaster. Water flowing under our streets. Where a trickle becomes a flood.

FLOOD is the final commission for the Mill Race Cultural Programme, funded by Historic England and follows on from Lancaster Arts’ FLOW project in 2022. It will be led by choir director and vocal explorer, Loz Kaye, who is heading up “County of Song” a year-long celebration of Lancashire voices in 2024, connecting people beyond traditional choir cultures. 

Come and help give voice to the Mill Race.

We are looking for:

  • Singers for a FLOOD choir – no auditions or particular experience needed. FLOOD choir workshops will happen in January 2024. For all ages.
  • Non singers to be part of the FLOOD event itself – to participate in the final event of the programme in February
