2012

Robin Ince - Nine Lessons & Carols for Godless People

Nine Lessons & Carols for Godless People hosted by Robin Ince at the Bloomsbury Theatre. We performed Daniel Basford's arrangement of Woody Allen Jesus by Tim Minchin.

BBC Two - Dara O'Briain's Science Club

In late November we were asked by the BBC to perform on a special music-themed episode of Dara O'Briain's Science Club. Instead of using our prepared pieces, we had the exciting opportunity to collaborate with the production team in writing special lyrics to a well-known tune which are both funny and entertaining...honestly!

Secret Cinema

In early November we performed with the Secret Cinema at a secret location in East London. It was all very hush hush until the publicity embargo was lifted in December. Now we can tell you all about it. The Shawshank Redemption was the film shown and the basis for an immersive theatre experience. During a pivotal moment in the story we transformed ourselves into a prison choir singing a range of beautiful, uplifting celebrant tunes in an old school chapel.
