Taking to the airwaves for Red Nose Day!

Red Nose Day

Have your funny red noses at the ready - because Choir with No Name is going to be popping up on BBC radio and telly during Red Nose Day!

We've been lucky enough to receive a total of £65,000 of vital funding from Comic Relief over the past three years, to support our work with homeless and marginalised people in London. 

Recently, Comic Relief wanted to come and see first-hand what we've been doing with their money - so they came along with some producers from BBC Radio 3 to a choir rehearsal at our choir in King's Cross. It was great to be able to share our stories with them, as well as sing for them, and cook them dinner too! (We have a delicious hot dinner together after every rehearsal.)

A couple of choir members were interviewed talking about what the choir means to them, along with Emma our choir manager, and Liz the choir director.

To hear what they had to say, tune into Radio 3 tomorrow - apparently our feature will be played on the breakfast show at 7.20am, and a longer piece will air on the In Tune programme at 5.20pm. 

And later on, die-hard Choir with No Name fans will definitely want to tune into Comic Relief - Face the Funny, live on BBC1 from the London Palladium. A little bird tells us that our founder, Marie, has been invited to be in the audience. You might spot her waving at the camera, sometime between 9.30pm and the close of the show!
