Boozy Choir

Karaoke gets communal.

Like karaoke? Fond of singing in public in general, whether you're solo or in a group? Then it's time to up your crooning game. Boozy Choir is exactly what it sounds like — aka a gathering of folks belting out a tune, together, over drinks. It's basically what happens whenever someone puts 'Wonderwall' or 'Weather With You' on the jukebox, but in a more organised fashion.

Occurring on the second Wednesday of each month from August 8, Boozy Choir takes place in Welcome to Thornbury's private event space The Showroom, which means that the food truck hangout will be alive with the sound of music. Participation is free, although you'll need to pay for whatever you'd like to drink — and yes, singing and sipping go hand-in-hand.

And, if you're not usually the type of person to unleash their inner Beyonce in front of the masses, don't worry. The great thing about choirs is that everyone is singing, so you are literally a voice in the crowd. You'll be taught a new song by a local musician each month, and you might just find joining in the fun cathartic. If you can't feel free when you're crooning along with a group, when can you?
