4 events for... singing along to your heart's content

Put those hours singing in the shower to good use.

WHETHER YOUR ONLY audience is your housemates while you sing in the shower or you’re always the first person to get a sing-song going, we all know how good it feels to belt out a tune you love. 

If you need more convincing to channel your inner Mariah, a study at the University of Oxford  found that singing can improve our happiness and well-being. 

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up four events around the country that will have you singing and smiling all day long. 

1. Sing Along Social at Bray Comedy Festival

When: 15-16 February

Where: The Harbour Bar, Bray, Co Wicklow

Combine singing with comedy and you’ve got an event you’re almost guaranteed to leave laughing. Sing and dance like nobody’s watching (nobody ever is) alongside strangers and friends to feel-good hits for the ultimate uplifting experience.

4. My Story, My Song 

When: 24 January

We all have a go-to song we listen to when we need a lift. At My Story, My Song, which is also part of First Fortnight, a selection of Irish artists will perform unique versions of the songs that mean the most to them and share stories of how music has helped them in their personal lives.
