The Alnwick and District Choral Society will be presenting its final concert of the year – ending a fantastic year for the group.

On Saturday, the popular group will be teaming up with the Reg Vardy Brass Band once again for the annual Christmas concert.

The programme hosts a range of different carols from both the singers and the band.

Peter Brown, the choral society’s director, said: “This is the twentieth anniversary concert of the two groups combined, actually making this our 21st ‘birthday’.

“This was originally the idea of choir vice-chairman Eric Brown and the band have been our loyal friends ever since

“This year sees the band under a new baton and playing some exciting new stuff. The choir sings a mix of American classic Christmas songs and more traditional carols.”

The concert is at Alnwick Playhouse at 7.30pm. Tickets from £12.50. Call 01665 510785 for details.
