Concert and choir to raise festive spirits

Rugby Editorial 6th Dec, 2023 Updated: 7th Dec, 2023   0

A CHRISTMAS carol service will remember loved ones and raise money for a life-saving charity in Rugby on Friday (December 9).

The Air Ambulance Service (TAAS) is asking supporters to join the charity at its In Memory Christmas Carol Service to help raise the funds needed for its vital missions.

Choirs from St Marie’s Junior School and Rugby Free Secondary School will join forces to perform Christmas carols, and former Rugby’s Got Talent winner Paul Sammon and special guest Madison Matthew will also take to the stage.

The evening will also include craft stalls, a raffle, cakes, refreshments, and a special In Memory stall selling candles for reflection and baubles to write a loved one’s name on to display on Christmas trees.

The service will take place at St Andrew’s Church on Friday December 8 from 6pm to 8pm.

A CHOIR will raise their voices – and festive spirits – in aid of a hospice charity.

Rugby Male Voice Choir will put on its Christmas concert at St George’s Church in Hillmorton, with a guest performance from Dunchurch Voices.

The concert takes place at 7.30pm on Saturday (December 9). Admission costs £10 for adults and £5 for children, including a buffet and a glass of wine for adults. Tickets are available from choir members, on the door or by e-mailing [email protected]. All proceeds will go to Rugby Myton Hospice.

Rugby Male Voice Choir has been raising money for local charities since 1944, and will mark its 80th anniversary next year with a celebratory concert at St Andrews Church on June 29.

The choir performs concerts for local churches and community groups free of charge – but always welcomes a donation to choir funds. Contact David Mayes at [email protected] to book the choir.
