The Choir with No Name are thrilled to announce that Miles Jupp, comedian and host of BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz, will be hosting a night of stand up and singing to raise money for the charity, who run choirs for people who've experienced homelessness.
Joining Miles at Union Chapel will be the cream of the comedy crop in the form of Seann Walsh (Mock The Week), Sarah Kendall (Russell Howard's Good News), Perrier Award Winner Justin Edwards (The Thick of It), singing comedian Jess Robinson (Dead Ringers) and Edinburgh Festival stalwart, performance poet John Hegley. Plus a special mystery guest to be revealed (comedy fans will NOT be disappointed!)
Thanks to event sponsors Links Resourcing and MillMoll Ltd, all money received through ticket sales will go to the charity, who are looking to raise £50,000 in March to secure the future of their choirs, enabling their members to keep singing, build their confidence and skills and turn their lives around.
Miles Jupp + Friends, Union Chapel, March 31st. Doors 6:30pm.
Tickets £20, available to buy via the Union Chapel Website:

About The Choir with No Name:
The Choir with No Name runs choirs for people who have experienced homelessness and others on the margins of society. Our aim is to enable our members to make friends, build their confidence and skills and find or re-find their place in the world. Whether they have been homeless, have a mental health problem or are otherwise struggling, we give them a safe, positive and supportive environment in which to sing away their worries, have fun and flourish as individuals.
Our first choir – in King's Cross, London - was founded in 2008 by Marie Benton, a professional musician and at the time also a senior project worker at homeless accommodation provider St Mungo's. That first choir became a huge success, and since then we have established three more choirs, one in Birmingham, one in Liverpool and another in London.
