    The Spooky Men's Chorale at the Sheldonian Theatre The Spooky Men's Chorale

    Equal parts monk, Visigoth and village idiot, the Spooky Men’s Chorale explores the paradoxes of latter day masculinity with unbridled enthusiasm, whilst essaying an increasingly preposterous array of subject matter: tools, mastodons, their own body parts, surfing, gluttony, and how to scare off hostile neighbouring tribes at 5.43 am. Gleefully smashing up and reassembling the world of men’s singing since 2001, the Spookies coutinue their long, slow, global conquest with a 6th tour of the UK.
