Latest update from Drunken Chorus

HERE IT IS!!! Our BIG BIG BIG news…
We’re so excited to tell you about our first ever mini-festival, taking place this September in Croydon. The event celebrates the launch of our new company of artists with disabilities – DISCO DISCO.
Online booking is now open, and details of the two day event can be found on the event page below. See you in Croydon! A FREE mini-festival of theatre, music and comedy by artists and companies with and without disabilities.

(Fully wheelchair accessible and British Sign Language interpreted)

DISCO DISCO is a new company of artists with learning disabilities, born out of Club Soda in Croydon, and now led by Drunken Chorus. To celebrate the launch of DISCO DISCO, we have invited some of our favourite artists and companies to perform in a two-day extravaganza of work that defies category, confounds expectation and smashes barriers!

The event is headlined by Touretteshero & Captain Hotknives. On Thursday 21st September we’re partnering with Improbable to host a Devoted & Disgruntled Satellite Event on networks in the disability arts sector. And on both evenings we’ll have a bar run by the fantastic Ignition Brewery (beer brewed by people with learning disabilities!).
