A Concert with two choirs, a soloist, an MC and some audience participation to put you in the festive mood!
A mix of carols, festive songs, poems/funny readings, light refreshment and good company. A Christmas tipple at the Sarecens Head afterwards too :)
In aid of the National Osteoporosis Society.
Tickets: £10 Adults (16+), £5 Children (Under 16 yrs), £25 Family (4 persons). Tickets available NOW from www.bathboxoffice.org.uk
Even though the poster says you can buy tickets at the door, the last two years it was sold out, so buy yours EARLY from the box office to avoid disappointment and RSVP.
I'm in CitySound Voices so Alex, James and Helen will host the meet up and I'll join you all at the pub afterwards.
