The BIG SING is a largescale choral event gathering 100s to learn and perform Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor. Once practised, everyone will come together for a special recording of the final performance which will be shared across our digital channels.

THE BIG SING will be led by conductor Mary Amond O’Brien and is the first event of a new initiative led by VISUAL which sees the launches of SING SYNC, VISUAL’s new community choir. Experience the positive impact of singing and singing together. Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary!

As people leave after THE BIG SING! on Culture Night, ROGU fire and light performers will turn up the heat at 10pm welcoming night revellers to a night of cabaret, performance and dance and so, The PING PONG DISCO will begin!

Please note THE BIG SING will be recorded and shared across VISUAL's digital channels. Please contact reception if you have additional access needs.

Watch the the recording below of Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor if you would like to familiarise yourself with the song and lyrics. To listen to the song in a slower tempo click on the settings wheel and change the playback speed to 0.75 or 0.50 to hear all the nuances, rhythms and all that Sinead does so beautifully with the song and how she really sings from the heart, giving every word meaning beyond the music.
