Preparations for your Newcastle Convention in September are coming along on schedule and all looks good for a great series of events.  We recently inspected the newly refurbished Wests City Club, it looks great and you’ll find the new facilities for our Welcome Dinner, Chorus Contest, Showcase of Champions and Farewell Lunch are truly excellent.
  • Wednesday’s Youth Contest, don’t miss this, it’s worth coming to Newcastle a day early to see the best of our youth at their best!
  • There are still places available for the Master Classes to be held Sunday afternoon and evening, concluding Monday lunchtime, so you’ll still have time to get home on Monday, big bang for your bucks with top international educators!
  • Our Quartet Contest starts one day earlier this year, so make sure you have your tickets and are ready for the action on Thursday morning…
  • Forefront fresh from a huge win at “International”, will be one of the Convention’s highlights, you’ll see them a number of times during various events and they’ll be hosting the Master Classes.Last year’s Champions Lockout & Sound Connection will feature at a number of events during the convention, plus you’ll see them at the John Little Show and Chorus Corral. A special plus; Lockout will be hosting the Afterglow at The Brewery on Friday night, come along and sing with the Champs!
  • Afterglows for every palate, Wednesday and Friday night at The Brewery and Thursday and Saturday night at Wests City Club following the welcome dinner and then following the Saturday Showcase.  Great venues, with great fun for all…
  • A Special Tour Programme has been arranged for partners and delegates with a little time to spare who want to view some of the regions magnificent attractions, details available on the convention website, where you can book in advance.
  • For Saturday Night’s Showcase of Champions extra tickets are available by adding to your current registration via the website.Alternatively your friends and relatives can buy tickets direct from West City Club on their website.
  • Sunday sees our traditional Church Service, this year to be held at the Newcastle Baptist Tabernacle, 25 Laman St, Newcastle, just a five minute walk away from West City Club, venue for Sunday’s BHA Forum and the Farewell Lunch.
It’s time to sort out your plans for Newcastle, fine tune your accommodation, make sure you have all the tickets you need, register for the Master Classes and plan this very special week of activities in the Hunter…
