After a sell-out show with us last year, the London African Gospel Choir are back with their re-imagined and totally uplifting rendition of Paul Simon's iconic ‘Graceland’ album.

Don’t miss the return of this astounding musical reinterpretation. Colourful, magical & awe inspiring, it includes all the hit singles, ‘Diamonds on the soles of her shoes’, ‘The boy in the bubble’ ‘Homeless’ & Graceland’s biggest smash hit, ‘You can call me Al.’

The LAGC are an internationally recognised, 17 strong collective of African singers, musicians & dancers. The total richness & harmonies of the Choir’s rhythmic, evocative & empowering voices, create an overwhelming & truly uplifting musical event. Ask anyone lucky enough to have experienced this astonishing, life-affirming show. To compare it to anything else, would be like trying to measure love, or joy, with a ruler.

Start time: 8pm

Approximate running time: 130 mins, plus 20 min interval.
