NSCC 2022 London Winners & Runners up

A HUGE congratulations to everyone who took part in this years National Signing Choir Competition! The NSCC 2022 was hosted by Revolution Signing Choir who brought the competition to the capital held at the phenomenal Cadogan Hall in Sloane Square. 12 choirs took part in this years competition with 5 in the junior category and 7 in the mixed category. The junior choirs competed fearlessly for the John A Stephens trophy whilst the mixed choirs battled to take the Morgan Astill Inspiration trophy. The choirs all gave 110% and it was unbelievable to see the bar continuously being raised. The NSCC would like to take this time to thank this years amazing judges – Richard Carter, Chelsea Fields and Ishtiaq Hussain who were a truly inspirational panel of adjudicators that took time out from scoring to showcase BSL poetry, a signed song and a visual vernacular performance.

The night was made even more entertaining with the comical quips provided by the one and only Samantha Baines who compered the evenings proceedings. Watching and listening to Samantha throughout the evening, interpreted by Claire Dallison-Hawkins, was simply side splittingly memorable!

This year the NSCC would like to express its sincerest gratitude to the mayor of Chelsea and Kensington – The Honorable Cllr Gerard Hargreaves who attended the competition, watched as the choirs competed for the top spot and presented the trophies to the winners and runners up.

Now it gives us great pleasure to announce the winners and runners up for this years competition.
