Nearly 100 Arsenal fans from the Islington community were united in chorus on Thursday, July 5 to revive the musical side of the game as part of the world's biggest all-city sing-along.
Led by Broadcaster and Arsenal fan Tom Watt, members of the Islington community staged a sing-along of Arsenal inspired favourites old and new, as a contribution towards the Sing London campaign.
This family-friendly event celebrated the relationship football and singing have always enjoyed and was staged under the clock near to the South Bridge on the podium at Emirates Stadium. The evening was rounded off with Tom Watt drawing the lucky numbers for an Arsenal prize draw where singers had the chance to win a signed Arsenal item.
Islington resident and Arsenal fan Paul Jones, who attended the event said, "Me and my family had great fun singing all our favourite Arsenal songs here at the stadium. Tom Watt was brilliant and really got everyone involved. If you like a sing-song, it was just a great way to spend an hour on a Thursday evening! We'll definitely be trying to attend another Sing London event in the city over the next couple of weeks."
The Sing Arsenal event, which will supported by BBC London Radio is part of Sing London initiative - an all-city sing-along, which is being held across the capital between June 29 and July 8, with over 100 events taking place to unite the city in song.
Other supporters of Sing London include the Mayor of London, BBC London, The V&A (Victoria & Albert Museum), South Bank Centre, British Museum, Science Museum, National Portrait Gallery, National Gallery, Royal Opera House, Mean Fiddler Group, The Roundhouse, London Libraries Development Agency, Museum of London, Museum of Childhood, Imperial War Museum, English National Opera.
