George Critchley, Chairman of True Bearing, said "As a firm, we are committed to giving something back to our community.

"The Last Choir Singing competition allows us to do just that. The competition, now in its fifth year, gives young people the opportunity to gain some self-confidence and the 'feel-good' factor that comes from singing their hearts out with a group of friends.

"The Last Choir Singing Grand Final promises to be an infectious celebration of school singing talent."

The Grand Final of Last Choir Singing 2019 takes place at King George's Hall, Blackburn.
