Tap, tap… Is this thing on?

(Update 20.12.21: sadly we’ve had to cancel our carols event owing to current concerns re: the omicron variant. Many thanks again to all who volunteered to sing.) Well, hello there. It’s been a while since you’ve heard from PDtP so I hope you’ve weathered these past 2 mad years as best you can. I would love to be getting in touch after all this time to tell you that our pub-singing extravaganza is getting off the ground once again but sadly the ongoing pandemic with its nefarious variants means it will be a while yet before we will be singing and boozing indoors. However, the regulars among you will recall that in Christmas seasons past, we have got together for an outdoor public singalong of traditional carols mixed in with our usual motets and chorales, bringing festive joy to Londoners and raising money for good causes while we’re at it. I’m delighted to say that this year we have been offered a spot to sing once again in front of the Trafalgar Square Christmas tree on Thursday December 23rd, from 5pm to 6pm (possibly even 6.30pm if I can persuade the authorities that our programme is just too epic to be crammed into 60 minutes).* So if you’re like me and:
  • have missed the thrill of singing together
  • are going to be around in London that day
  • are willing to do a bit of home practice in advance and
  • would like to come along to join in the fun
then please fill in the form below and I’ll get back to you by the middle of next week with details. ****Update 16.12.21: the registration process is now closed.**** Please don’t sign up unless you’re sure you can make it as it leaves us in a tricky position if we get drop-outs or no-shows. (And if you can’t make it then we’ll miss you like crazy but there’s no need to get in touch to let us know!) Fingers crossed that we’ll be able to make the magic happen! Cheers Kevin

*Whether or not we’ll definitely be going ahead will depend on how many people are able to come along (we need a minimum of 35) and also of course on public health guidance.

I am a classical music enthusiast and a lover of choral music in particular. I run the Polyphony Down the Pub social/singing night, probably the most thrilling singing-Renaissance-motets-in-the-backroom-of-a-pub experience you could ever hope to have.
