Cockney Sing-a-long A good, old-fashioned, Cockney sing-a-long, where you can exercise the vocal cords and enjoy some classic favourites, played on the ‘old Joanna.
Cockney Sing-a-long Class

"Hi, I'm Tom and come and join me in this interactive Musical Performance (Sing-a-long) as I lead you in a good old-fashioned sing-a-long, in the grand Cockney tradition. 

Sharing my love of Music Hall and popular song from the 1850s to the 1950s, I will explore sing-a-long classics including songs from the Music Hall, World War 1 and World War 2, the West End stage and popular songs from across the decades."

Lyrics will be provided on screen during Cockney Sing-a-long each week.

On Tuesday 17 Jan 2022, We start the year with an An Evening on Tin Pan Alley, where we'll be singing the following songs:

Alexander’s Rag Time Band
Carolina in the Morning
California Here I Come
If You Knew Susie
Baby Face
Toot, Toot, Tootsie
Yes Sir, That’s My Baby
Give My Regards to Broadway
You Made Me Love You
Oh, You Beautiful Doll
He’d Have to Get Under (Get Out and Get Under)
K-K-K-Katy
Let Me Call You Sweetheart
In the Good Old Summer Time
I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles
Happy Days are Here Again
By the Light of the Silvery Moon
Bill Bailey Won’t You Please Come Home
After the Ball
Yes, We Have No Bananas

And more. Of course Tom will be taking your requests.
