Our christmas concert 2023

How to Raise £4785!

Want to know how to do it? Well, you start practising your Christmas songs in August! Then you need a huge team to get the show organised and advertised. We sold over 200 tickets in four days and had to start a waiting list.
We are always grateful to St George's Church, who allows us to use their halls and the church and support us all through the year.
Next you work hard with your two talented assistant musical directors, Mary and Charlotte, to produce a polished and joyful performance. And then you get one of your quartets, ‘Vivacity’, to sing three beautiful songs, including a moving rendition of ‘Mary, Did You Know’.
As a wonderful contrast, we loved having a festive brass band from the Salvation Army, with three stirring carols. 

But most important of all, you need loving friends and family, travelling from far and wide; including Bristol, Devon, Ireland, Aberdeen, and even Kefaloni! We were especially honoured that the mayor of Bromley came to support us.

We are so grateful to everyone who came, and ate our home-made bakes, drank our mulled wine, bought tickets for our excellent hampers and humored us by singing along with our communal songs.
But most important of all- we hope that everyone goes away from the evening, feeling a little lighter and ready for the season
