Post your questions for Charlotte Church
This month, Charlotte Church is giving the very last of her Late Night Pop Dungeon shows. If you haven’t seen this nine-piece festival staple, you’ve been missing out. Picture the scene: it’s 2am, you crawl through Glastonbury’s Rabbit Hole or make a beeline for one of Green Man’s more remote tents, and there she is, the voice of an angel, belting out hits by the likes of Black Sabbath, the Cardigans, 10cc, Destiny’s Child and Rage Against the Machine, swigging champagne between verses. It is, as you might imagine, a complete riot.
“After six ecstatic years of unparalleled debauchery, the Late Night Pop Dungeon is hanging up its feathers, sequins, PVC and velour,” Church said in a statement. “All good things must come to an end, and this ending will be the most euphorically lickable ending conceivable. Think Carrie meets Sunset Boulevard, soundtracked by the second side of Abbey Road. Think a pool party with Prince and Kate Bush at the grill, Beyoncé and Kurt Cobain on the bar… except it’s also Christmas.”

Pop Dungeon is on the more debauched side of Church’s otherwise fairly wholesome latter-day activities. She also runs the earthy Welsh wellness retreat The Dreaming, as well as the Awen Project, a forest school where study is led by its young charges. She has had a multifaceted career: a classical singer who found fame by the age of 11 and sung for Bill Clinton; a teenage victim of tabloid sleaze who would become a witness in the Leveson inquiry into phone-hacking at the News of the World; pop star, TV presenter, Guardian columnist, parent, and an activist on feminist, environmental and political issues.
You can ask Church about all that and anything else when she sits for the Guardian’s reader interview next week. Post your questions in the comments below by 10am GMT on Tuesday 6 December – and bag your Pop Dungeon tickets here.
