Christmas is coming soon, and with it will come plenty of opportunities to hear the choir.
First up is The Big Christmas Sing
Saturday 2nd December 7pm at St Alban’s Church, Swaythling. We will be joined by dancers from the Parkewood School of Dance and young singers from some local schools, and perhaps some others. This is an event we do from time to time and it’s always fun.
In previous years we have sung at the Mayor’s Carol Service, originally intended for Civic Centre staff and held in the main entrance hall of the Civic Centre, and anyone can come.
It’s an impressive venue, with wide stairs and brilliantly painted plasterwork, and is a nice place to sing just at the peak of the festive season (punch and mince pies afterwards of course).
This year however, in an attempt to be more available to the community at large the event will take place outside in the Guildhall Square, so it’s wrap up warm time, get those lanterns out and Sing!
This will be on Thursday 21st December at 3:30pm
OK, Carols and Pizza at the King Rufus in Eling on Friday 22nd December at 7pm. This pub is run as a sort of co-op and has regular musical events. Pizza is optional (?) and cooked on their outside wood oven.
