Latest Update from Nick

Dear choir members.

Thank you for an excellent rehearsal on Monday evening. We are making good progress with the pieces. Next Monday we will start on some Christmas carols including Away in a manger: Coventry Carol; and We wish you a merry Christmas.

Don’t forget that we start this Monday with our AGM at 7.30. Rehearsal should then start at 8pm and we will extend the end time to 9.15pm (we have the Town Hall booked till then anyway).

Here is the programme order as I envisage it. This does not include where we have our Guest Stars solo slot(s). We do know that James Wilby will be reading the 12 days of Christmas, and there may be another Guest Star as well.
