The Oxford Belles may have already performed their Christmas concert, but there are still plenty of offerings around the country for the avid a cappella fan to savour.
Things kick off this coming Monday, 5 December, with a joint concert between two groups from the University of Exeter – The Sweet Nothings and Semi-Toned, who have promised to provide us with a free and festive night of a cappella at The Long Longue in Exeter. Not only will they both be performing several songs as individual groups, but they will also be teaming up in one song and giving a joint performance, which is sure to stir up the Christmas cheer.

On Thursday 8 December, the four a cappella groups from the University of St Andrews will be hosting their annual Christmas concert, this time returning to Younger Hall, a venue in which they have not performed this particular concert for three years. YouTube sensations The Other Guys will be there; the best female group in the country The Accidentals will be strutting their stuff; two-time VF-UK Finalists The Alleycats will be providing the crowd with their infectious energy; and up-and-coming all-female group The Hummingbirds will be showing off their latest batch of talent. Joining them will be special guests Choral Stimulation, all the way from the University of Glasgow, who will be bringing a fresh and exciting addition to events. Our man, Mr Lau, will be there to enjoy the event, which you can find out more about here.
On Tuesday 13 December, The Techtonics from Imperial College, London, will be hosting their own Christmas Conert, which is being held at the Read Lecture Theatre. Not only will they be showing off their own talents and perhaps some new techniques they picked up from their tour of Croatia, but they will also be introducing two brand new a cappella groups from the college, which is definitely something to get excited about! Find out more about the event here.
Also on the 13th is the joint gig with the two King’s College groups, All The King’s Men and The King’s Chix, which will be taking place at the Stamford Street Lecture Theatre. Last year’s VF-UK finalists All The King’s Men are bound to produce a great show as ever, while The King’s Chix will be performing, as ever, in their sassy, avant-garde style. This is another show not to miss. Find out more right here.
