Sing for Water at The Scoop is an incredible day of music and fundraising for WaterAid. Sing for Water was initiated by Thames Festival Trust and composer Helen Chadwick in 2002 as a choral project which raises money for WaterAid. To date, Sing for Water has raised over £1 million for WaterAid projects in Africa and Asia. This year all the money raised will go towards communities in Malawi. Choirs from London and around the UK learn a repertoire of songs chosen by Roxane Smith and Katie Rose and are then sponsored to perform in a concert at the Scoop.

Lea DeLaria, ‘Big Boo’ on Orange is the New Black, brings her live show to the Bridge Theatre for one night only. ‘(DeLaria) swings hard, and scats and bends notes in a style that suggests a no-frills Betty Carter on steroids.’ (The New York Times) Known for her frank outspoken politics and big personality, DeLaria is not one to shy away from comedy that will bite hard and elicit gales of laughter. Her new show features hits from her latest album House Of David: delaria+bowie=jazz. and shows off not just DeLaria’ s comic genius but her spectacular vocal range in songs such as ‘Fame’, ‘Young Americans’ and ‘Let’s Dance’. With a velvet-smooth voice contrasting perfectly with razor-sharp wit and sassy stage presence, this will be a spectacular performance. Tickets: £39.50 & £25 Book here.
Following last year’s sell out concert series in the Bascule Chamber, composer and curator Iain Chambers returns to fill the atmospheric subterranean Victorian space at Tower Bridge with a brand new programme. Featuring newly commissioned vocal works performed by the Marian Consort, a dynamic internationally-renowned young early music vocal ensemble, recognised for their fresh approach and innovative presentation. The Marian Consort will perform classic renaissance pieces, some exploring the phenomenon of voice-hearing. There will also be new site-specific music, alongside specially-commissioned spoken word performances from Rae Levine; plus celebrated tabla player Kuljit Bhamra MBE will perform an exclusive solo set. The Bascule Chamber houses Tower Bridge’s huge counterweights during lifting. When the bridge is at rest, this dramatic brick-lined space stands empty. These unmissable, atmospheric concerts provide a unique way of experiencing one of Victorian engineering’s greatest feats. Book here Essential information Please note performances are subject to change upto 24 hours before due to the working nature of Tower Bridge.
