Here at SOTC we LOVE a flash-mob! We’ve performed them at music festivals, out and about in town, and may have another surprise one coming up at a local landmark!

But what are they? And where have they come from?

Well flash-mobs first come to prominence in 2003 in the USA, where they were initially used for marketing. They later morphed into vehicle for entertainment and artistic expression. A group of people assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an ‘unusual act’ for a brief time, then quickly disperse.

Rather unsurprisingly, our ‘unusual act’ is singing songs! We’ve infiltrated unsuspecting shoppers and festival go-ers before suddenly bursting into song… but where will we pop up next? Keep yours eyes open and your ears peeled…
