Formed in 2012, the Games On Song choir is made up members of the games industry who volunteer their time and voices to sing and raise money for GamesAid; a UK based video games charity which acts as an umbrella to support a number of smaller charities who help disadvantaged and disabled children and young people.

“We’re delighted to be once again performing to help continue the amazing work GamesAid does” said Ian Chambers, Musical Director of Games On Song. “Every year members of our industry aim to raise more money to give to more charities. We have choir members who have worked on some of video games’ most iconic franchises such as Tomb Raider, Sonic the Hedgehog, Assassin’s Creed, and Fallout, and they have once again generously given up their time to sing. The Christmas concert is fast becoming a very special event in the fundraising calendar.”

Featuring classic carols and Christmas songs with a video game twist, this year’s concert will be the biggest yet.
