+ LIVE CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
+ 4 NEW ANTI-CAROLS
15th - 17th December, 8pm (Doors 7pm)
Joy to the world, KAROLAOKE is back! After last year’s sell-out festivities, the Coveryard decks the halls of Palm2 in Hackney with more inventive chamber-pop arrangements to grant your every Last Christmas wish, from Silent Night to Santa Baby, from Let It Snow to Let It Go - all accompanied by a live 12-piece chamber orchestra.
Join us from 7pm for mulled wine, mince pies and paper chain-making activities, before the singalong kicks off at 8pm. Then stick around for Christmas crackers, mistletoe and merriment from 8 till late.
Adding some mulled wine spice to the Mariah Careys (and Macaulay Culkins), the Coveryard has commissioned four new 'anti-carols’ from young composers that will take a sideways look at contemporary Christmas, and the mix of nostalgia, community and consumerism that comes with the holiday season.
Tickets: £14 advance/£18 on the door
Featuring composers Josephine Stephenson, Thom Andrewes, Sarah Latto, Will Gardner and musicians Joseph Malpas, Gene Taylor, Heather Ryall, Mike Soper, Ric Hollingberry, Kate Huggett
Design: Caroline Narracott
