Sing London produces city wide events in which the wider public can engage.
Whether we are uniting a city in shared song or in mass ping pong, our projects aim to make participation feel joyous and irresistible. We believe that by taking part in something, you feel a part of it. We use participation to connect people to each other and to the places around them.
Ultimately our projects set out to make cities feel happy places to be.
