Christmas is coming!


Prepare for Advent and the Christmas season by coming to our performance of one of the most popular choral works of all time, Handel's Messiah. We have a first class line-up of professional musicians, a venue with beautiful acoustics, and a choir that is well prepared and raring to go, so we are expecting a  marvellous concert!

(*nb - Victorian churches with high ceilings give great acoustics but are hard to heat in cold weather, so please come prepared.)

One month after Messiah, we hope to see you at our popular annual Christmas charity concert, full of Christmas music and goodwill to all! As always, festive refreshments will be served after the concert.

The charity this year is the Cameron Grant Memorial Trust,  set up after a personal tragedy, to support mental health in young people. Please visit their website to find out more. We hope that you will give generously.

Please open up the pictures below to see the concert details in full.
