850 Strong Audience Make Crypt Factor A Night To Remember

Crypt Factor 2017 is over for another year and Candid PR was on hand to contribute to its success by providing the annual singing competition with PR support for the fifth year running.

This year’s event was bigger than ever with a record audience of more than 850 property professionals descending on The Pavilion at Elland Road, to cheer on 12 brave singers who all work for leading firms in the property industry. There’s no doubt anyone who can stand on stage and blast out hits from the likes of Tina Turner, Wham, Guns & Roses and even Elvis, in front of so many of their contemporaries, has big balls and deserves a lot of respect!

As a result of their valour and dedication, the show’s organising committee and main sponsors, comprising of Bruntwood, Gent Visick and Pinsent Masons, estimate that the event raised more than £75,000 for charity. It’s a staggering amount of money that will be shared between St George’s Crypt and The Leeds Fund, which is managed by Leeds Community Foundation.

This year’s show was won by boyband Out of Sync consisting of Oliver Stainsbury, Sam Jamieson, James Boothroyd, James Pank and Tom Hodgson who put on a cracking performance of Everybody by the Back Street Boys.

Planning has already started for Crypt Factor 2018 and the show’s organising committee are currently looking for singers. Further details about next year’s event will be unveiled in the coming months and anyone wanting further information, or to express an interest in singing, can follow the event on twitter @cryptfactor.
