Get ready to belt out a power ballad at this massive singalong session.
Every Sunday, Berliners (and visitors) gather at the Mauerpark for ‘Bearpit Karaoke.’ This al fresco sing-off sees brave members of the public take centre stage in the midst of a big concrete amphitheatre and perform their choice of song to their fellow attendees – with varying levels of success.

As organiser Joe says,it really started from a very simple idea:
1. Coax a random stranger into singing karaoke in a park.
2. See if a crowd gathers and hangs about to watch.
3. If one does, then try to coax somebody from said crowd into singing karaoke too.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 until the batteries go dead.
Now the format is coming to London for two three-day sessions! Organiser Joe Hatchiban is bringing the Bearpit to Vauxhall Gardens in south London, on Thursday and Friday evenings (from 6pm) for some post-work caterwauling and Saturdays for families (from 3pm.) The dates are Sep 15 – 16 and Sep 28 – 30.
