Join Us

No matter what your background or experience, we welcome you to audition for the BOC. Our members range from 16 to over 80 from all backgrounds, communities and walks of life. We have members from Newry, Whitehead, IslandMagee, and Omagh to name a few.

Talent & Togetherness are at the core of BOC

We are blessed in Northern Ireland to have such a deep pool of creative individuals, born and bred in this wee country we call home.

At BOC we give those people a platform to shine so they can exhibit their remarkable talents for the world to see.

The talent of our performers is only matched by the skill of our production team, who ensure that the shows and concerts we put on really are up there with the best the UK has to offer.
