What is a Song for Yorkshire?

LNER Song for Yorkshire

We want you to write and perform a Song for Yorkshire!

Welcome to Yorkshire are launching the LNER Song for Yorkshire competition to celebrate everything we know and love about Yorkshire.

With huge prizes and opportunities on offer, we're looking for Yorkshire’s next aspiring singers and song writers.

The competition is open to all ages and both individuals and/or groups but  we ask that you please do observe the correct social distancing for your area.

It could be your school band, your local choir, a group from brownies, scouts, work colleagues, uni mates or just you, on your own.

All genres and styles are welcome, from opera to, classical, pop, rock, rap, dance or even folk – it just has to be an original song – So if you have a passion for singing and song writing, there’s a place for you!

Entrants have until 13 November 2020 to submit their song (video or recording no longer than 4 minutes in length). They will then be shortlisted by a panel of specialist judges from the music and media industry, before the final songs are put to a public vote to  decide who will be crowned the LNER Song for Yorkshire winner 2020.
