If there’s a lot of you and buying tickets in this way still means that it costs too much, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can sort something out.
Mrs H and the Sing-along Band is a part of a larger collective of professional musicians united by the passion of bringing quality music to children and their families, music for all the family.
Founded in 2015, the band is made up of members from Red Snapper, Beth Orton, The Leisure Society, Imagined Village and Emily Barker including Ali Friend, Gill Sandell and Ted Barnes. Much praised for their joyful, euphoric performances the band is all about participation. Part music, part theatre and comedy, there really is no one else around doing what they do. Alongside their regular weekly gigs in London the band have toured and performed extensively, including venues and festivals such as Latitude, Beautiful Days, Camp Bestival, High Tide, National Theatre, Barbican, the Quarterhouse and sold out shows at The Union Chapel, London.
In 2018, supported by Arts Council England and Waltham Forest Council, they developed their intergenerational project ‘All Together Now’, bringing young families and older generations together through music. They have made four albums/ books and are featured on the hugely successful YOTO product range.
