Chaps choir


Chaps Choir have been taking their witty, moving and urbane male voice choir experience out of the city and into the UK’s festival fields since 2015. Beyond throwing down a set that’s boisterous and touching by turns, they bring a touch of that much-needed festival magic, with singing workshops & up-close performances that bring festival-goer and performer together at last.

Fun, dynamic performances & workshops

Drowned In Sound REVIEW - Citadel 2016

‘Our day starts with the bandstand and Chaps Choir, a horde of...singing men from Islington that produce a winning, lifting sound that drifts bucolically through the trees…their set a brief but sweaty whirl of headdress and rhythm’

'the @ChapsChoir are absolutely tearing it up at their…gig tonight. We love you Chaps!'
