Unfortunately, the Singing Plague Victims have retired from performing.  

Medieval meets Monty Python...
...the Bruegelesque Singing Plague Victims perform traditional songs and music culled from the rich musical heritage of Merrie England, with an emphasis on comedy and audience participation. 
They are indeed a sight to behold, with long nosed Nostrildamus and Milly Molly Manky, once arrested for having an offensive voice.

The Plague Victims have appeared at Warwick Castle, Nottingham Castle, Sherwood Forest, Runnymede, Hampton Court etc etc...

If a suitable hovel is provided, they will perform in said hovel, with their own less than hygienic cooking facilities, and will prepare a selection of disgusting comestibles.

Leave them alone and they'll play for hours.


Unfortunately, The Singing Plague Victims rarely perform these days.  We do have many other Medieval Characters for hire though.

The Singing Plague Victims


Also Available: The Singing Sea Shanties

Three part harmony group Hat Trick have appeared at many prestigious venues as Shanty Singers, including The Cutty Sark, The Grand Turk, The Soren Larsen, Trinity House, The Kingsmere Castle, Chatham Nelson Day, and at the Arsenal Football Ground before the match !! They include one of Britain's best known and respected shanty singers and concertina players, Keith Kendrick

Their lusty interpretations of authentic shanties are delivered in wonderfully flamboyant and greatly inspired three part close harmony, both accompanied and acapella and always include an element of audience interaction and humour, making them suitable for all types of event.

Musical accompaniment can include melodeon, concertina, banjo, hurdy hurdy and various percussion.

For the Christmas season, the Sweeps in their period costumes add enormous visual impact to any festive event, and for certain outside events they have a Victorian handcart which they decorate with period lanterns and greenery. 
Popular with adults and children alike, their Christmas repertoire includes most traditional carols and seasonal songs, all given their magnificent harmony treatment.
