Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Alex, Jon & The Dial Up family!

Thanks to everyone who came to support and enjoy our special Christmas Dial Up! What a superb evening! One of the highlights was The Masters of Whimsy, who delighted us with a cleverly re-worded version of We Three Kings, so thanks to Anthony, Paul and lyricist Glyn for the surprise- lyrics below!

Our next Dial Ups are in the New Year so come and join the party! We're at the Watford Palace Theatre at 5pm on Sunday 8th and the Seven Dials Club, Covent Garden at 7.30pm on Friday 20th! See you then and much love! Alex xx

We four Kings of Dial Up are,
Coming from Watford it's not that far,
Metropolitan or Watford Junction,
Using our Oyster Cards

CHORUS: O-oh, Dial Up wonder, Dial Up delight,
Dial Up on Friday night,
West End pleasing with music and singing,
And Alex who's on the mic!

The Masters of Whimsy are here once again,
Singing songs to entertain,
But will we ever sing something clever,
Or just a simple refrain.


The end is nigh for us handsome guys,
With tears of sorrow filling your eyes,
But alleluia! ALLELUIA!!!
The audience to us replies,

The Dial Up Christmas Knees Up, Saturday 10th at Watford Museum!

Thanks so much to everyone who came along and made our Watford Dial Up Christmas Special such an amazing event! There was so much wonderful talent in the room, and it was easily the longest open mic list I've ever had! Our next one, the Dial Up Christmas Knees Up, is this Saturday, 1-4pm at the Watford Museum. I do hope you can join us, it should be another marvellous afternoon, and it's completely FREE! If you know some one who might enjoy our unique brand of merriment, bring them along for a taster session and a minced pie, lol! Much love, Alex xx
Thanks to Dan Cozens for filming, more videos available on The Dial Up Open Mic youtube channel so do check it out! xx
