The Birth of Sing-a-long-a: The unique, interactive entertainment form known as Sing-a-long-a, meanwhile, was allegedly born in an old people’s home in Inverness. The nurses wanted to involve the residents in an interactive group therapy. They decided to screen Seven Brides For Seven Brothers and gave out song sheets so that everyone could sing-a-long. The idea was then developed for The Sound of Music for London’s Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in 1999, before opening at the Prince Charles Cinema in August that year. An initial eight-show run soon sold out, while attracting huge media attention, and regular singalong shows have been running ever since, not only in London but all around the world.
