We’re holding an extra-special Hoffman gathering in London on Saturday 8th December.

Hoffie grads, family and friends are invited to come and join us for an evening of fun and frivolity with a vaguely festive theme. There will be drinks and snacks, creative makes – and the chance to join the first outing of the Hoffman instant choir!

If you think you can’t sing, don’t let it put you off – you won’t be put under a spotlight or asked to do anything you’re not comfortable with. Under the gentle guidance of Hoffman grad, classical soprano and vocal coach Zoe Bonner, we’ll all reach a place of harmony together.

Zoe says, ‘There’s a Zimbabwean proverb: If you can walk you can dance, if you can talk you can sing… We’ll be learning simple, joyful and soulful songs together by ear and letting our playful and expressive selves take the lead.’

The venue is St Barnabas’ Church, on the corner of Clapham Common and Lavender Gardens. You can find a map and directions here.

Arrive from 7.00pm, we start our first round of singing at 7.30 and finish at 10.00pm. There’s a small kitchen and drinks and sandwiches and snacks will be provided, but you’re welcome to bring your own if you have special dietary requirements. Family and friends are very welcome to come along.

Entry to the venue is on Lavender Gardens.
