London Gay Men’s Chorus

Saturday 8 April

8.30pm (doors open 8.15pm)

The London Gay Men’s Chorus is no ordinary choir.  It started life in 1991, when nine friends sang Christmas carols at Angel Underground Station to raise money for the Terrance Higgins Trust.  Fast-forward to today and this band of singers now has over 200 members and is the largest gay choir in Europe. The LGMC Ensemble is a smaller group of experienced singers, around 16 members of the main Chorus.  Experienced and talented performers, the Ensemble will blow you away with songs from their vast repertoire.


Party Night with Sadie Lee

Sadie Lee is an award-winning painter, art educator and antiquated Disc Jockey. For nine years she was a DJ and co-promoter of the much loved Lower the Tone – a club for people who hate clubs in North London. She has DJed at the Flare Festival at the BGI, the Schwules Museum Berlin, Ladyfest Feminist Arts Festival in Estonia and the legendary Bell in Kings Cross. Hard-core 1970s in her dress sense as well as in her taste in music, she favours an eclectic selection of old-fashioned pop songs.
