Yorkshire Festival 2014 – The Really Big Sing

Yorkshire Festival 2014 was the first ever arts festival to precede the Grand Départ in its 111 year history. Nearly 50 events were selected to be officially part of Yorkshire Festival 2014 which also included hundreds of fringe events. A choir of six thousand school children performed a concert in the biggest open air theatre in Europe, with songs on the theme of wheels and a specially composed Festival song.

The Really Big Sing, accompanied by a digital art exhibition, was an ambitious performance that showed the world what North Yorkshire's youngsters are capable of, as they entertained an audience of le tour-ists as they prepared to watch the race of their lives.
