Event information

Join us for a very special online concert, featuring choirs from around the country. Choirs will learn songs separately and then come together (virtually!) for one big performance. Whether you're a spectator or singer, the result is spectacular!

This year's Sing for Water concert will now be a virtual event via Zoom, held on Sunday 27 September at 2pm. Singers can sing along safely at home as individuals or in small socially distant groups, depending on government guidelines. 

Watch the concert

Sing for Water started in 2002 as part of the annual Totally Thames festival. Each year 500 people from choirs across the UK join forces to perform in the Scoop, right next to the River Thames. The incredible atmosphere, electric crowd and picturesque location make it a day to remember.

Support WaterAid

If you're watching the concert please show your support and appreciation for the choirs by donating to WaterAid.

Raising money

Each singer commits to raising a certain amount of money as part of the event, and all the funds currently support our vital projects in Malawi, reaching some of the world’s poorest communities with clean water and decent toilets. To date, Sing for Water events have raised over £1 million for WaterAid's work.

Thanks to the amazing fundraising efforts of our choirs, we have been able to bring clean water to communities across Malawi, like Chiswe village.

Before Chiswe had clean water, the children often fell sick with illnesses like diarrhoea caused by drinking dirty water. Or they would sacrifice their time in school to go in search of cleaner sources.

Now, with a water kiosk in the village, the children are healthier, happier and can enjoy their time in class and playing with friends.

When Sing for Water first started, our dream was to raise £1,000. Over the last 15 years, you’ve turned that into over £1 million for projects in Burkina Faso, Malawi, Ghana, India, Timor-Leste, Ethiopia and Rwanda. It’s wonderful that so many choirs, festivals and individuals are now involved with Sing for Water.
