Fans are invited to stop what they’re doing, wherever they are, at 1pm on 13 May 2013 to be a part of this exciting national musical initiative!
The day offers fans three ways to get involved;
• Taking part in an official flash mob performance in London
• Participating in one of several flash mobs taking place across the country
• ‘Singing Your Day’
However you choose to get involved you can share your singing efforts across the official social media platforms for LES MISÉRABLES (www.facebook.com/LesMisMovie).
1. Taking Part in an Official Flash Mob Performance in London
Musical groups and fans from around the UK are invited to London on 13 May to take part in a spectacular rendition of ‘Do You Hear the People Sing?’ at St Pancras train station at 1pm (participants will need to arrive by 12.45pm). Confirmed attendees will also be entered into a prize draw to win some amazing LES MISÉRABLES goody bags. To take part, attendees must join the ‘London flash mob performance’ event on the official LES MISÉRABLES Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LesMisMovie).
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for LES MISÉRABLES fans to sing alongside top selling classical artist Laura Wright (http://laura-wright.co.uk/) who will be leading the flash mob. Laura is an ambassador for the charity Nordoff Robbins (www.nordoff-robbins.org.uk/), a music charity dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults. Those participating in the flash mob will have the opportunity to support Nordoff Robbins by texting to donate. West End stars including Rhiannon Porter (Jesus Christ Superstar) and Christopher J. Orton (Spamalot) are also warming up their voices in preparation to participate.
2. Participating in One Of Several Flash Mobs Across the Country
Those living outside the London area who are keen to do something big to celebrate the Blu-ray and DVD release of LES MISÉRABLES on 13 May are encouraged to set up and film their own flash mob performing their favourite song from LES MISÉRABLES in their local area.
