Teaming up with the celebrated The Massaoke Band, Car Park Karaoke brings together the live music experience with the unrivalled joy of a huge singalong. Giant screens will project the lyrics so that households can join in from their own vehicle. With themes such as Back To The ’80s, Family Movies and A Night At The Musicals, fans will be encouraged to belt out the words, bringing the Glastonbury and Latitude favourite closer than ever before.

What is Car Park Theatre?
