This is a community tribute to those whose lives have been touched by cancer. 'Choirs for Cancer 2023’ brings together cancer patients, family members, allied medical professionals and cancer researchers to share the story of their cancer journey.

These stories will be interspersed with inspirational songs from choirs and very special guest singers, many linked with cancer support centres, fundraising or awareness raising efforts.

Join us for this truly inspirational and uplifting event!
