Latest News: 11 October  Soloists announced for Messiah from Scratch

For more than 4,000 people, over 3,000 of them singers, the excitement of Christmas begins with a visit to London’s Royal Albert Hall to join The Really Big Chorus in Messiah from Scratch®. This is a unique performance of Handel’s Messiah as there is no rehearsal for the singers. Novel – dangerous, even – but the result is simply superb, time and time again: a wonderful adrenaline-filled performance which leaves everyone – singers and audience – leaving the Hall on an amazing ‘high’.  Follow the links on this page to learn more.
