Following the success of Glee and the Pitch Perfect movies, a cappella is bigger than ever. Returning to brighten up this gloomy January is the London A Cappella Festival. Now in its 7th year, the three-day festival is bringing some of the top a cappella groups from around the world to our capital.

Country music group Home Free are flying over from Minnesota, USA to make their UK debut

This year’s festival at Kings Place in Kings Cross is curated by five-time Grammy-winning vocal group The Swingles and Ikon Arts Management. There won’t be an instrument in the place as singers come together with only their voices creating the music. The festival forms part of BBC’s Great Creative event, which celebrates British arts, culture and creativity.

Among the highlights of this year’s festival include co-hosts The Swingles, performing ‘Winter Tales’, inspired by the cold season. Country music group Home Free are flying over from Minnesota, USA to make their UK debut, while Tenebrae Consort will be singing as they launch their new album Sun, Moon, Sea And Stars. Other acts performing included supergroup Naturally 7 and Shlomo & the Vocal Orchestra. There will also be workshops, foyer showcases, talks and free interactive events.

  • The London A Cappella Festival runs from 28 – 30 January 2016. It takes place at Kings Place, 90 York Way, King’s Cross, N1 9AG. Nearest station: King’s Cross St Pancras. Tickets start from £9.50. For more information, visit the London A Capella Festival.
