Those wonderful guys and gals at Backyard Cinema are taking over East London’s Troxy this December for a fun filled festive programme featuring ‘non-stop singing, dancing, music and performance’.

The Backyard Cinema Christmas Extravaganza will showcase three classic movies (Home Alone, Elf and Love Actually) with each one preceded by an original Christmas story by George the Poet.

Ahead of the event, the Backyard team are transforming the venue into the ‘ultimate Christmas Movie Palace’ with Christmas lights, decorations, and a massive Christmas tree.

There’ll also be mulled wine, mince pies and just to ensure that the event goes with a bang, the company have enlisted the help of the Some Voices Choir and The Backyard Band.

The Some Voices Choir have built up quite a reputation for themselves with their refreshing versions of popular chart hits and their inclusive, no audition – no problem, policy. Beginning in 2010 with just seven members, the choir now boasts over a 1000 members with rehearsal spaces across the UK.

The Backyard Band, meanwhile, is the Backyard Cinema’s very own house band, whose distinctive style and musical skills mean that they have the ability to rock any venue out.

If you can’t make it to the Troxy this Christmas, however, then you’ll be happy to know that there are several other Backyard Cinema events taking place this winter.

The company will be hosting The Winter Night Garden at The Capital Studios, Wandsworth, and they’ll also be popping up with The Snow Kingdom at the same venue.
