Our annual Christmas concert will be held at St Michael’s Church in Lewes. We’ll sing a selection of traditional carols, also some other festively themed pieces and some festive readings chosen & performed by our members. We’re also proud to introduce ‘The Darkling Thrush’ a new carol composed by our very own Ruth Kerr, which is a setting of Hardy’s poem of the same name. Stand aside, John Rutter … !

Please do come and join us to get into the festive spirit! We love a bit of audience participation so hearty singing voices and your own set of jingle bells welcome …

Carols at Lewes Late Night Christmas Shoppingimg_1745

Thursday 1st December 2016, 6:30 – 7:30 pm, near Barbican House on Lewes High Street

 

There’s no hiding it now – Christmas is approaching. While we make no apology for mentioning the ‘C’ word in November when we start rehearsing Christmas music in October, singing carols on 1st December seems fitting whatever your stance. We’ll be singing our hearts out for Lewes Late Night Christmas Shopping so be sure to give us a wave or even stop to sing along if the weather-gods are kind.
