It’s a party. It’s a concert. It’s the best pub “lock-in” you’ve ever been to. Featuring pop, classic rock, folk, Broadway and pub tunes, The Choir of Man offers something for everyone. A multi-talented cast of nine handsome blokes combines hair-raising harmonies, foot-stomping singalongs, world-class tap dance, and poetic meditations on the power of community in this riotously enjoyable homage to that gathering place we all know and love: your local pub.

Not only is the concert set in a pub, but it has a real working bar from which the cast will pull pints and invite audience members to get up close and personal with the show – witnessing the action from chairs and tables among the guys – come ready to drink in the action!

This mug-clinking success comes from the creative minds of Andrew Kay (Soweto Gospel Choir, Noise Boys, Gobsmacked, and the award-winning North by Northwest) and Nic Doodson (The Magnets, Gobsmacked, and Noise Boys).

“After spending months at home during the pandemic, the boys hit the road in early 2021 and took Australia, New Zealand and UK by storm,” says Doodson. “After sold-out engagements in multiple international markets, including the Sydney Opera House, our sights are now set on a return to the states. So, come thirsty for great music and great beer!”

The Choir of Man continues to enjoy mass appeal by audiences of all ages by celebrating music by Adele, Queen, Paul Simon, Katy Perry, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more. The all-European cast features world-class tap dancers, singers, and instrumentalists, ensuring there is something for everyone in this joyous and uplifting show.

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine calls The Choir of Man “dynamic, jovial, and – above all else – really bloomin’ fun,” while Broadway World lauds it as “a wildly entertaining joyful romp!”
