Join us in our original home at The Ashcombe School!

Join us for the descent into winter with songs that warm our hearts. We’ll be singing traditional folk carols and seasonal songs from around the British Isles and exploring the heritage of our choir members by singing some South American folk songs for the first time. The year will end with some carol singing in local care homes and a Christmas Party in one of our lovely local pubs. As always we will combine mindfulness and visualisations with our singing and all levels of experience are welcome!
