ORGANOKE: The Alternative Carol Service


Instead of Silent Night, why not don that Christmas jumper, grab a beer or two and party in the pews or dance down the aisle belting out that most traditional of Christmas tunes: from Slade’s “Merry Christmas Everyone” to "Fairytale in New York"

The inimitable Ida Barr returns in all her faded Edwardian grandeur to get you on your feet using that beer bottle as a microphone like you’re Freddie Mercury on tour.

Forget "Little Donkey" and come sing your heart out to Karaoke Christmas Classics with one of London's oldest church organs turned up to 11, before rounding off the night with an afterparty in the Crypt.

Jordana Leighton, Co-Creator of ORGANOKE, says “From the first chords on the organ, people are on their feet, and by the end of the song they are dancing in the aisles. There is something rather magical in seeing 500 people packed into church pews singing their hearts out. It’s joyous, camp, kitsch and a lot of fun.”

As Kit Green AKA Ida Barr first said: It is like a wedding with the boring bits taken out!”

A bit of “Bo-Raps” in a neo-gothic church? - It's what George Gilbert Scott would've wanted!
