How to Submit your videos

Submit your Video

We’re inviting people from across Greater Manchester to upload their videos and have the opportunity to be featured in our Manchester moment. You’ll have until 09.00am on 29th May to do this, so we’ve got time to edit the footage into a record of this Greater Manchester moment which will be broadcast on-line at 6.00pm on Sunday 31st May.

The broadcast will be live on-line at 6.00pm on Sunday 31st May. 

The deadline for this has now passed. 

See below for our safe participation and social distancing guidelines, and for some top tips on how to make a great video.

This event will be captured by both your own recorded content, and our filming crews who will film some streets under social distancing guidelines with drones and street cameras.

You can still take part in Together In One Voice if your street isn’t nominated by watching the YouTube Live Broadcast. We are encouraging people to film themselves singing along and you can then submit your videos afterwards.

Safe participation & social distancing

We want everyone who takes part in Together In One Voice to do so safely with no risk to themselves, their families or neighbours.

This means that you must remain in your house / flat / garden for the duration of the live stream and not venture into the street. You should observe social distancing guidelines at all times.

How to make a great video

  • Make a video per song rather than one for the whole sing-along
  • Film landscape rather than portrait and try to keep it steady
  • Sing loud and have the song volume turned up
  • If you aren’t the best singer you can still dance, remember we want you to be part of our broadcast so get creative and enjoy yourself!
  • Look at the camera on your device, not the screen
  • If you’re filming indoors make sure the room is well lit, we want to see you!
  • If you share your content on social media don’t forget to tag @togetherMCR and use the hashtag #togetherinonevoice
  • If you would like to submit your video to be featured in the Sunday night broadcast remember to visit to send your video to our editing team before 9am on Friday!
  • Make sure your clips are suitable for a family audience otherwise they won’t be included!

What is social distancing?

Social distancing measures are steps you can take to reduce social interaction between people. This will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).

They are to:

  1. Avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). These symptoms include high temperature and/or new and continuous cough
  2. Avoid non-essential use of public transport when possible
  3. Work from home, where possible. Your employer should support you to do this. Please refer to employer guidance for more information
  4. Avoid large and small gatherings in public spaces, noting that pubs, restaurants, leisure centres and similar venues are currently shut as infections spread easily in closed spaces where people gather together.
  5. Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media
  6. Use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services

Everyone should be trying to follow these measures as much as is practicable.

We strongly advise you to follow the above measures as much as you can and to significantly limit your face-to-face interaction with friends and family if possible, particularly if you:

  • Are over 70
  • Have an underlying health condition
  • Are pregnant
