A group of singers gathered on a London street that was plunged into darkness on Sunday, March 11.

The singers harmonized to pass the time after a power outage darkened all the shops, restaurants, and venues in Soho, central London.

The outage was due to malfunctioning cables, according to local media. Several theatres and venues in the area, including one showing “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” lost power and were unable to continue as normal.

The blackout struck at about 6:30 p.m., the Evening Standard reported.

Many took to social media to share photos of blackout scenes.

Describing the unusually dark streets, one person tweeted, “Power cut in Soho and Chinatown and feels like I’ve walked into the apocalypse.”
