The man-choir emerged blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of NSW fifteen years ago and armed with no more than their impressively cavernous vocal chords, a nice line in deadpan, improbable facial hair and an ill-matched set of hats, have been gleefully wooing audiences throughout Australia, New Zealand and the UK ever since.

Why go and see it?

As thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks, The ​Spooky Men’s Chorale​ are the gift that keeps on giving!

Renowned for a combination of Visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies, in middle age, are more masters of their territory than ever before, with five critically-acclaimed albums under their belt.

Production shot

Brandishing a shiny brand new CD ​Welcome To The Second Half, the magnificent, craggy ensemblage of heavenly singing male bodies return to the UK in 2019, ever more comfortable with their whimsical humour and musical breadth – a winning spectrum of Georgian songs, pindrop-beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers, and immaculate man anthems. 

Honestly, astonishingly beautiful - once seen they are never forgotten
- Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

What the critics say

Entertainment at its most absurd and wonderful. Five Golden Stars
- Culture Concept
Highly theatrical, they veer from weird to touching and back again. Grown up entertainment in the best, most infantile way. Don’t miss an opportunity to see them
- Daily Telegraph
It takes a rare skill to be very silly, thoughtful, and sing in perfect harmony
- The Guardian
