Calling all choirs, join us for an unmissable opportunity to perform during Totally Thames on Sunday 11 September along the South Bank under the iconic Tower Bridge with choirs from all around the UK and help WaterAid make a difference to lives around the world. 

Sing for Water is an amazing and uplifting outdoor concert where choirs from all around the UK come together for one mass performance - right beside the Thames.

This is a great opportunity for people to meet other choirs from up and down the country and perform together. Rehearsing as individual choirs, you will come together for a collective mass rehearsal the day before the final performance after which you'll sing together as one powerful and moving choir. Last year approximately 20 choirs, 500 people from London to Ireland joined forces to perform a set of water inspired songs - and this year we want to be just as ambitious. 

Co-founded in 2002 by renowned composer, singer and musical director Helen Chadwick and the Thames Festival Trust, Sing for water has raised over £850,000 for WaterAid in India, Burkina Fase, Ghana and Malawi and the day has become a highlight event in the Totally Thames festival programme, always attracting a huge crowd!

This year, sign up your choir to Sing for Water and help us hit our target of £1 million! 

Why WaterAid?

Right now, millions of people across the world are living without access to clean water and sanitation. This crisis is costing lives and ruining chances of development. 

WaterAid's vision is a world where everyone has access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene - basic human rights that most take for granted. For more than 30 years WaterAid has campaigned to change and save lives - and you can help them to make a difference.
