The Guinness Singing and Swinging Pubs competition is now in its 67th year. This competition has come a long way since it first started in 1952, and it hasn’t lost an ounce of its unique character in those 67 years. The people who contribute and compete in the Guinness Wexford Singing and Singing Pubs competition have managed to nurture the event through time. They have also worked hard to ensure the original competitiveness and atmosphere still exists today.
People travel from all over the world to soak up the atmosphere and indulge in the ever expanding talent that Wexford has to offer. Apart from the fact that this is an Over 18s Event, there are no written rules beyond an appropriate time period. We invite you to visit some, or all, of the pubs and hotels taking part to see if you agree with the adjudicator’s decision. The main sections in the competition are Singing, Swinging, Variety and Traditional Style.
Why not decide for yourself when you attend a show what type of house you are in. Crowd participation is a very important element and whether you are in your local pub or visiting for the Festival, you can be as much a part of it as the singers and the musicians. On behalf of Diageo Ireland can I wish all the competitors the best of luck in the competition. I would also like to thank the people of Wexford and all the very welcome visitors for their support over the last 67 years. Let’s make the 67th year the best ever.
