Concerts past and future
TOWER THEATRE FESTIVAL AT THE OLD CHURCH
CHRISTMAS SINGALONG AT THE CURVE GARDEN
19 December 2019
We had a wonderful time leading our annual Christmas singalong at Dalston Eastern Curve Garden on 19 September. The Garden is such a special place and was looking particularly beautiful with its colourful lanterns and greenery. There was a large crowd who sang their hearts out - a great time was had by all!
We had a very successful and enjoyable concert at the White Hart, with a full and enthusiastic crowd. Our extra rehearsals paid off and the choir sounded great, joined by our trusty group of wonderful musicians, Jo, Kev and Gwenan. Our new songs Anchor and River had a great outing and of course we ended with a rousing audience singalong.
I forgot to take photos so here's one of Keanu Reeves, who had been watching the room since Canada Day.

A wonderful evening once again at the fabulous Dalston Eastern Curve Garden.

BOILER HOUSE SINGERS WINTER CONCERT
5pm, 3 December 2017
The Prince, Stoke Newington
We had a very successful concert upstairs at The Prince in Stoke Newington. The choir had worked hard to get the songs sounding really good, and we were joined by Jo, Kev and Helen accompanying us on guitar, keyboard, mandolin, tin whistle, harmonica and cajon! They really enhance the sound and we're lucky to have them. The choir sang beautifully and were joined by an enthusiastic audience for Gloucestershire Wassail and Fairytale of New York. A very enjoyable evening!
SUMMER CONCERT, DALSTON CURVE GARDEN
June 25 2017
We had a great time singing at the magical Curve Garden, and the sun stayed shining. We performed a range of our repertoire, and were joined by our fantastic musician friends - Helen on keyboard, Sarah on cello and Joe and Kevin on mandolin, guitar, cajon to name but a few instruments! And of course it wouldn't be a Boiler House Concert without our usual audience singalong!
ABNEY PARK SUMMER OPEN DAY
We sang a short set at Abney Park Cemetery's Summer Open Day, and were joined by choir member Saphia's husband on guitar for 'Have you ever seen the Rain?" The rain just held off for our set before pelting it down. We then joined several other local choirs and the audience for a singalong.
BOILER HOUSE SINGERS' CHRISTMAS SINGALONG - DALSTON CURVE GARDEN
December, 17 2016
The choir, joined by some friends from Hackney Singers, performed some of our Christmas repertoire, before launching into our now famous Christmas singalong at the wonderful Curve Garden in Dalston. A great turn-out and some hearty singing from the crowd. There was a fantastic atmosphere and the Garden, lit up with beautiful paper lanterns as part of its Festival of Light, looked absolutely magical. See you in Christmas 2017!
SUMMER CONCERT 2016, JAN'S BAR
This was our last ever gig at the legendary Jan's Bar in Northwold Road (which sadly closed down), where we'd been performing since we began in 2012. It was a lovely concert, featuring our trusty musicians Jo and Helen, and joined by Sarah on the cello. A rousing Happy Birthday to choir member Annie's son and an audience singalong concluded the evening.
