The Spooky Men's Chorale are the gift that keeps on giving, as anyone who chuckled their way through their last visit to Inchyra in 2015 will attest … "as thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks." The man-choir emerged blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of NSW fifteen years ago and armed with no more than their impressively cavernous vocal chords, a nice line in deadpan, improbable facial hair and an ill-matched set of hats, have been gleefully wooing audiences throughout Australia, NZ and the UK ever since.
Renowned for a combination of Visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies, in middle age, are more masters of their territory than ever before, with five critically-acclaimed albums under their belt.
Brandishing a shiny brand new CD 'Welcome To The Second Half', the magnificent craggy assemblage of heavenly singing male bodies return to the UK in 2019, ever more comfortable with their whimsical humour and musical breadth – a winning spectrum of Georgian songs, pin-drop beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers and immaculate man anthems.
Their last UK tour saw a large number of sell-out concerts at major venues and a whole raft of ecstatic festival audience reactions. You must see them. Really, you must!
“Inspired – and a triumph of choreography! Catch them on the road – a fantastic night out is guaranteed!”Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
“High camp, epic folly – probably the best programming choice of the entire summer festival circuit’– The Irish Times
“Highly theatrical, they veer from weird to touching and back again. Grown up entertainment in the best, most infantile way. Don’t miss an opportunity to see them”– Daily Telegraph
Here are these marvellous Australian chaps at Inchyra in 2015:
TICKETING: Tickets for shows at Inchyra can be purchased online through our ticketing partner Skiddle. Tickets through Skiddle are print at home e-tickets meaning there are no delivery charges. For some shows we also issue paper tickets which can be bought over the counter at the following outlets: St Madoes Village Store (very close to the venue), Spar in Errol, Bandwagon in Perth and Groucho's in Dundee. Tickets are transferable but non-refundable – this means that, once you have purchased a ticket you can give it or sell it to someone but it cannot be refunded by the venue. This is standard practice for live shows as it would be impossible to run shows if you couldn’t rely on the ticket sales. If a show is sold out, Skiddle run a very effective re-sale facility, which can be accessed through your Skiddle account.
TIMINGS: Timings for Inchyra shows follow a pretty set format. Doors open at 7pm with hot food available and the bar open. Show time 8pm. Unfortunately we are not able to advise on end times for live shows as these will vary accordingly to the artist. However, if there is support the times will be approximately 8.00pm support act, 9pm headline act, with a finish at approximately 10.30pm, but this may run over depending on encores etc. Shows without a support act are likely to finish earlier. The bar is usually open until 11pm.
ACCESS TO INCHYRA: Inchyra is a private home which is opened up for shows. The car park will open an hour before the doors open, which is usually at 7pm. Please don’t arrive on the estate earlier than this.
SEATING FORMATS: Seating for all shows at Inchyra is unreserved. We will tell you at the top of each show listing what style of show it is. Here's a description of what to expect for each style of seating:
Cabaret Seating: jazz club style seating at small round tables with chairs, together with some bench seating for larger cabaret style shows. Chairs are padded, benches are not. You are advised to arrive early to grab the best seats.
Theatre Seating: chairs laid out in rows facing the stage and allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please be advised that due to the construction of the barn, seats in some places will have a supporting beam in their view, so again arrive early to grab the best seats.
Standing: there is very limited seating available at these shows.
DISABLED ACCESS: If you require disabled access or seating for any of our shows, including standing, please contact us on 01738 860066 and we will do our best to arrange this for you. Please be advised that disabled seating at standing shows requires the construction of a ramp and raised stand so please contact us well in advance. Priority will be given to wheelchair users. We cannot guarantee disabled seating if we are not notified in advance of the show. There are disabled parking bays close to the venue, where again, wheelchair users will be given priority.
FOOD: for most shows at Inchyra there is hot food available (usually street style food) and we will detail this in the show information at the top of the page. Food is served from doors opening time.
BAR: Unless otherwise specified there is a licenced bar available at all shows.
UNDER 18s: we are all in favour of introducing children and young people to live music at an early age, however, our experience is that below a certain age the vast majority of children find big loud shows too much which is not great for them or for the rest of the audience. We therefore give a minimum age which is our experience is suitable for each show. Please do not buy tickets for children below the stated age as we will not be able to give them access.
