An Announcement from the London A Cappella Festival

It’s been ten years of a cappella magic, from jaw-dropping headline shows and workshops, to epic showcase performances, interactive events, and LACF Kids, welcoming tens of thousands of a cappella lovers to Kings Place and the capital.

We’ve been proud to see the London A Cappella Festival grow over the past ten years, and we will be taking a break from the festival in 2020.

However, we’re thrilled to announce that we will be presenting two exclusive a cappella concerts in January 2020 to quench your thirst for extraordinary vocal music!

Friday 24th January 2020: The Swingles and The King’s Singers Vol. 1: Finding Harmony
Saturday 25th January 2020: The Swingles and The King’s Singers Vol 2: Evolution

For decades, two legendary groups have set the gold standard for British vocal music. Now, the London A Cappella Festival presents an unprecedented opportunity to experience The King’s Singers and The Swingles in concert together over two evenings of collaborative music-making.

Each concert will be different and will celebrate the rich diversity of each group’s repertoire and their distinctive sounds. Experience the rare chance to hear both ensembles embracing each other’s musical styles, combining to express their shared belief in the power of singing – to foster harmony, bind communities and inspire change.
