Voicelab

Voicelab is Southbank Centre’s vocal initiative, inviting everyone to explore their voice and participate in festivals, workshops and performances throughout the year.

It gives you the chance to discover the power of your voice through singing, encouraging you to express yourself whatever your age, ability or experience. It’s an opportunity to join together with hundreds of people in song and discover what it means to be a singer. 

Voicelab has engaged with thousands of singers both nationally and internationally and continues to grow every year, sharing a vision to empower, unite and inspire everyone through singing.
