The weekend before Christmas is the perfect time for a choir and a brass band to come together for a concert of festive music.

On Saturday, December 20, Alnwick and District Choral Society and the Reg Vardy Band combine forces once again to present their very popular Christmas Concert.

If you want to get the Christmas season off to a great start hearing some new and old favourites, then the 7.30pm performance is the place to be.

Alnwick and District Choral Society was founded in 1933, although records of a society can be traced to the middle of the 19th century, and now performs in local churches, halls and the Playhouse.

Based in Stanley, County Durham, the Reg Vardy Band are 34 times North of England Brass Band champions.

Tickets for the show, costing £12.50 or £13.50 premier, are available from the Playhouse box office in person, on 01665 510785 or at the Alnwick Playhouse website.
