Choir member Mick Gardner said: “Christmas music old and new with plenty of opportunities for audience participation – who doesn’t love singing Christmas carols!


“Among the items new to us is Paul Laurence Dunbar’s poem Christmas Carol, set to music by one of our tenors, James Walton, which won the BBC Radio 3 Carol Competition in 2020.

“We’ll also perform Star Journey, a suite of seven carols set to music by our Music Director Dan.”
