Christmas Carol
Singalong
at
The Royal Albert Hall


Sunday 13 December 2015


On 13th December, members and guests gathered at Stocklund Square at an unearthly hour, for a coach trip to London.  We attended the Christmas Carol Concert at the Albert Hall for the afternoon performance.  It was wonderfully festive, colourful and full of good cheer!

Of course, all of the carols were familiar, but without doubt the audience participation added to a magical performance.  The compere was first rate, and the guest soprano seemed to thoroughly enjoy herself - and sang well.  All left the venue uplifted and still singing!

The coach driver, Conrad, then gave us a tour of the West End to view the Christmas Lights, and went well beyond his duty in doing so.  Whilst some lights were slightly disappointing, others were well excellent, and for many on board, without the tour there would have been no opportunity of seeing them.  So thanks to Conrad, and to Gwen for her splendid organisation, as usual.
