Carol Composition Competition

The search is on to find a Hungerford Carol! The competition is being organised by Tim Crouter (Hungerford Town band), Chris Buck (church organist) and Iris Lloyd (whose idea it was).

The composition may be the work of one or more collaborators who should live, work or go to school within a 10-mile radius of Hungerford.

The carol should have a Nativity theme and take no longer than 3 minutes to perform. Both words and melody are required. Copyright will remain with the composer(s).

How to Enter

There are three age groups:

1. Up to 11 years of age (free entry)
2. 12-17 years of age (free entry)
3. Adult (£5 entry)

Entry forms may be downloaded by clicking here or obtained from, and any enquiries directed to, any of the following:

Tim Crouter, 3 York Road, 07776 381510 timcrouter@aol.com
Chris Buck, 17 Sanden Close, 01488 683396 peteg3lwt@btinternet.com
Iris Lloyd, 13 Bridge Street, 01488 686372 iris.lloyd@virgin.net
or the Vicarage, Parsonage Lane

Closing date: Wednesday 1st November 2017.

It is a condition of taking part in the competition that all entrants give permission for their entries to be performed free of charge during the Christmas 2017 season as the judges see fit, e.g. at church services, at concerts, in the open air, etc.

Timed Auditions – Saturday 11th November

Timed Auditions will be held at 2.30pm on Saturday 11th November in St. Lawrence’s Church before the panel of judges. Anyone may attend the Auditions as part of the audience but will not have any input in choosing the winner.

Light refreshments will be available for the duration of the Auditions.

If any competitor is known to a judge, that judge will declare their interest and use his or her discretion whether or not to withdraw from the judging panel. As this is a local competition, it is recognised that some of the entrants may be known to everyone on the panel.

It will be the carol that is judged and not the performance.

When all entries have been performed, the judges will retire to agree on their decision, after which the winner will be announced and a small prize awarded. The winning entries will be given full publicity.

Any funds remaining after expenses have been paid will be donated to the church in payment of the lighting and heating used during auditions.

We very much look forward to being inundated by your entries!
