Electric atmosphere - raising the roof at 'Homes for Britain' rally

On stage at the Homes for Britain event

Thousands of people got together in London yesterday to call for politicians to end the housing crisis within a generation. The Choir with No Name North London had a blast performing at Westminster Central Hall!

Some highlights:

  • The party atmosphere when we started singing 'Our House' by Madness - thousands of people cheering the choir to the rafters
  • Every party politician - from Nigel Farage to Caroline Lucas - was asked: "Will you commit to ending the housing crisis within a generation?"
  • A passionate speech from Ken Loach, director of iconic television play 'Cathy Come Home' back in 1966
  • Some amazing talks from a number of people who've personally experienced homelessness and housing problems
  • The amazingly wide range of people and organisations involved - including the National Housing Federation, Crisis, RIBA, the Royal Town Planning Institute, Shelter and the Residential Landlords Association
  • The hearty cheers when our choir manager Emma dedicated our rendition of 'Put a Little Love in Your Heart' to politicians everywhere
  • The incredible reaction on Twitter after the choir performed.
