The London Gay Men’s Chorus (LGMC) – Europe’s largest LGBT+ choir, with more than 200 singing members – celebrated their 30th birthday last December, and have been marking this milestone with a year-long programme of celebrations.

Following on from their ‘Big Birthday Bash!’ concerts at The Clapham Grand last winter and their ‘Sondheim Songtime’ shows in the spring – which starred West End royalty and Olivier-winner Jenna Russell as a special guest – the group is now bringing new concert ‘The Halloween Ball’ to an iconic North London venue, Alexandra Palace, on the 28th and 29th of October.

The shows promise to be something special, with a diverse array of songs drawn from the Halloween canon. Singalong pop favourites from artists including Lady Gaga, Meatloaf and Michael Jackson will feature alongside anthemic numbers from musicals including The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Addams Family and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Expect a few haunting and ethereal numbers from icons including Annie Lennox and Kate Bush, too.

Artistic Director Simon Sharp said: “The Halloween Ball promises to be a really exciting spectacle from the LGMC! We have a whole variety of tricks and treats up our sleeves for this devilish delight. We can’t wait to bring our new programme – featuring all the Halloween repertoire you might expect, and hopefully a little sprinkling of the unexpected – to this iconic London venue.”

It’s been quite a year for the LGMC already – alongside their main concerts, they have also opened for Katherine Ryan during her shows at the London Palladium in the spring, as well as performing sets at the Mighty Hoopla festival in Brockwell Park, and the Summer By The River festival at The Scoop. They also collaborated with the West End cast of hit musical The Lion King to record a special version of ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’ to coincide with Pride in London this summer.

Tickets for The Halloween Ball, from £15 (plus fees) are available here.
