NTU Chamber Choir performs flash mob at charity dinner

The NTU Chamber Choir surprised guests with a flash mob at Battle for Batten charity dinner.

On Saturday 8 November the Nottingham Trent University Chamber Choir performed at the Battle for Batten charity dinner in Goosedale Banqueting Centre, Nottingham.

Battle for Batten is a charity founded by Andrew and Sarah Dawkins. Their twin boys, Freddie and Louis, were diagnosed with Batten, a rare and life-limiting genetic disease, when they were just three-years-old.

This was no ordinary performance for the choir. Members waited patiently for their cue to begin a flash mob performance of Can You Feel The Love Tonight, from Disney's The Lion King. As the pianist began to play, the choir began to sing, gradually making their way through the audience to gather together for the final chorus.

The performance went down a treat with guests and contributed greatly towards the success of the evening. The event raised a staggering £60,000 for the charity.
