Annual convention

The Quartet of Nations Region 31 regional convention is usually held in May each year. During this weekend members and other barbershop harmony lovers from the UK and the Netherlands convene to celebrate all things about singing a cappella in four-part harmony in barbershop style. This annual convention also provides an opportunity to see and listen to the choruses and quartets compete for several awards including the honour of representing the region at the Sweet Adelines International Convention. At the end of all contests, the winners go back on stage for the Show of Champions, which also features special guest acts.

Education workshops on barbershop techniques are also available during convention weekend. These workshops are facilitated by renowned faculty from international as well as our own region.

All-weekend passes for the regional convention are available to members and non-members alike. Single events tickets can be also obtained for each contest and the Show of Champions.

A Harmony Bazaar is also held at the regional convention where retailers and organisations can offer their products and services to the delegates.
