We are delighted to announce a special celebration of Christmas in words and music. But this will be no ordinary event - the clue is in the title!
While we hope lots of you will come and enjoy listening to a short evening of music and readings, hereís our special challenge - COME AND SING!
We are inviting groups from any background - musical and non-musical! - to sing any Christmas song of their choice lasting 3-4 minutes. If you are part of a group that already exists, just let us know and we will be delighted to provide an accompanist if you need and give you a slot in the proceedings. Or if you are an individual who would like to be part of the entertainment, get in touch and we will be happy to find a team for you to join.
There will also be the opportunity to buy some last minute Christmas decorations, food, and stocking-fillers. This is a fund-raising event and profits go to Linton Music Society who continue to bring Linton great concerts. DO support us, and have a great time!
