“I haven’t sung for years, thank you for bringing back such a super memory and encouraging me to keep on singing.”  Gerry, aged 92

Increasingly we are seeing the importance of place to our communities, and the important role that arts and culture can play in establishing this.

To mark The Sixteen’s 40th anniversary in 2019, we launched our Residency programme where we aim to delve deeper into local communities and reach a wider and more diverse group of people, with The Sixteen’s Choral Pilgrimage performances at the centre. The residencies lead to a more compact programme with high intensity and using a new approach to reach a large number of people in the communities that we visit. We hope that they will create a strong legacy and support our whole Education and Outreach activity.
