If you fancy adding an extra layer of sequins and star power to your next karaoke session, Barrioke might be just what you’re looking for. 

Shaun Williamson – best known for his 10-year role as Barry in soap opera Eastenders and playing Barry in Ricky Gervias’ Extras – is bringing the Barrioke party to towns across Britain. 

With this unique karaoke knees-up, Shaun is giving fans the chance to grab the glow sticks, warm up their vocal chords and join him on stage to croon along to a tune of their choosing. 

With a sprinkling of banter in between the pop hits, Shaun’s shows are fun-filled, nostalgic and heavy on audience participation. 

Barrioke is currently on its nationwide tour of the UK, having proven popular at festivals Kendal Calling, Y Not and Tramlines with Shaun singing alongside stars Sam Fender, Olly Murrs and Rag’n’Bone Man. 

With some 2024 shows already sold out, you can find upcoming dates and buy your tickets on the Barrioke website here.
