Christmas concerts in Hitchin will add to the seasonal glow this week


Royston Choral Society will be making their contribution to the festive season on the last Saturday before Christmas, with a little help from their friends.

They will be lifting up their voices in the town’s St John the Baptist parish church in Melbourn Street with a Christmas Celebration that will also feature the talents of the Royston Youth Choir and Santa’s HatBand.

Mulled wine and mince pies will be laid on in an evening which will include carols for choirs, audience and orchestra from 7.30pm.

The programme includes Mendelsshon’s Frohlocket, Smallman’s The Birds, and Bullard’s Angel Alleluiahs as well as familiar carols and seasonal songs.

Tickets are £12 (concessions £9, school students £1) and are available from choir members and at the door.

And after you’ve sung along, why not resolve to come along in the new year to the society’s free open rehearsal session which will run from 8pm on Tuesday, January 20, at the same venue.

The society’s director of music David Boarder said: “You won’t be asked to sing on your own, and men are especially welcome.”
