Exeter University group treat commuters to an ABBA-tastic performance

An acapella group from the University of Exeter will be popping up on selected commuter trains on their way into Exeter on 9th, 10th and 16th February. The impromptu performance will be helping to shine the light on an exciting new Scandi pop-up restaurant launching in the city this month. A group of 14 singers from the popular group Semi-Toned will be performing their unique rendition of an Abba medley to herald the arrival of new Scandi pop-up restaurant, Skandel@Circa – featuring an Express Menu fresh from the hot new Scandinavian food brand straight out of London’s über-fashionable King’s Road.

There won’t be any London prices, though, as you will be able to enjoy a delicious two-course lunch for just £10.95.

The performance will be a real treat for commuters, as Semi-Toned will be fresh from winning the Exete Quarter Finals of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella 2016, an international competition that attracts hundreds of college a cappella groups each year. Next up for this talented group is a US tour, where thanks to TV shows such as Glee, a capella is more popular than ever.

Circa 1924 Co-owner Rob Weeks, says: “Thanks to our Swedish Chef, Lauri Hilli, we wanted to introduce something innovative and fresh and so thought it deserved a launch with a difference. We hope commuters will get involved and share the performances on social media using #CircaSkandel and including @Circa1924 and @SemiToned to help us create a bit of a buzz.”
