Lips Choir Presents...'A Total EcLIPSe of the Year'

Friday 11th and Saturday 12th December 2015
7.45pm (doors 6.45pm)
St. John-at-Hackney
Tickets £13.50 (£8.00 concessions)

Lips will be looking back at the events of 2015 in their traditional feel-good style, and will be welcoming very special guests, comedians Josie Long (Friday night) and Felicity Ward (Saturday night), to join their girl gang for the show. 

You can expect banging arrangements of your favourite tunes sung in luscious harmony, with Musical Directors Kat Stark and Jessie Maryon Davies unleashing homages to Riot Grrrl, RnB, via Garage and back again. And, as always, YOU get to join in too. All of this and more will be perfectly bundled in an original production written by Lips' very own alto Heather O’Shea, over two nights in the atmospheric music venue St John-at-Hackney. 

To keep you entertained all night long there will be a few added extras along the way:
  • Hot food, Bar, Games and Photobooth
  • Audience sing along (CLUE: ‘Turnaround’…) 
  • Poetry by members of Refugee Women’s Forum
This is sure to be an unabashed and audacious event, packed full of feel-good vibes and sweet sounds that will really get your festive season underway!

Join Lips and sing at the 'Shut Down Yarl's Wood' protest on 6 June

On 6 June Lips will join Women for Refugee Women, Women Asylum Seekers Together (WAST) London and campaigners from up and down the country to call for the closure of Yarl's Wood Detention Centre.

Lips Choir is proud to stand in solidarity with Women Asylum Seekers Together (WAST) to support the #setherfree campaign that calls for an end to the detention of anyone who seeks refuge from persecution in the UK. The day will also hear from some fantastic speakers, including Helena Kennedy and Shami Chakrabarti.  

We would love friends of Lips to join us in support of the women detained. If you are in a choir, or an individual who's interested in adding your voice to support this important cause, then please do join us at the protest, where we will be leading the singing. We are organising a coach and there are a few spaces still available if you are looking for transport. For more info about the protest visit the Facebook event.

Hope to see you there!
