Performing hits by everyone from Adele to Billy Joel and shows like a Funny Girl to The Greatest Showman, the organisers say there is “something for everyone” at their shows.

The chorus are hoping to raise a smile or two with tram travelers with their flashmob, as well as capitalising on a hugely successful Las Vegas performance which placed them 11th in the world in 2017 and a 2018 UK competition win which ranked them first in the UK for the seventh time.
