Sing! In Real Life! Together!

Hullabaloo Quire is delighted to roll out four more, very special, Real Life singing events, to celebrate the slight easing of lockdown rules. 

Now that we are able to meet outdoors in groups of 6 and after the success of our first 3 sessions, Hullabaloo has devised a series of 4 more short, socially distanced singing events. 

Join @HullabalooQuire as we gently and safely return to #RealLifeSinging! Saturday 1, 8, 15, 22 May, central Brighton. Very limited places available! #SingingIsFun

This page answers all of your questions!

IRL Singing Saturdays in May 2021
There are still High places for all dates, Mid and Low places are full on all but 22nd May… (we have a waiting list)
Saturday 8th May

With a Little Help from my friends Lyrics

How will it work?

There are only 24 places available in total for each date.

There will 8 places available per harmony part.

You will be able to sign up for either a Low, Middle or High Harmony place.

You will be required to stay with your harmony group for the duration of the workshop.

Each group will be arranged in a socially distanced manner and will be significantly further apart from the other 16 in the group (further than walking past someone in the park – but near enough to hear their voices!).

VERY IMPORTANT: Participants will be asked to agree to the PARTICIPATION CONDITIONS and to read and comply with our RISK ASSESSMENT upon booking.

What will we be singing?

Each week, Kirsty will choose a different song, and we will be learning that song from scratch and finishing it within the hour! The songs will reflect our sense of (cautious) celebration and a hope for coming together as a bigger group before too long. The songs will be arrangements of existing songs (rather than original material) so you may well recognise the repertoire!

Friends' Meeting House Garden

Where will it be?

We will be meeting in the garden of the Friends’ Meeting House on Ship Street in Brighton. Immeasurable thanks to our ‘friends at the Friends’ for allowing us to meet here. We will just be meeting for an hour, from 10:30am – 11:30am. This will include a quick warm up and then learning and singing the song. There will be no toilet available as the Friends’ Meeting House will be locked, and there will be no break in the workshop.
