An open invitation to all singers across North Yorkshire and beyond!

Come and join our choir to sing this traditional festival of nine lessons and carols. All money raised will be donated to the UNICEF VaccinAid appeal. Please extend our invitation to anyone that you think maybe interested in attending (either to sing in the Choir or in the Congregation).

There are six optional rehearsals - singers are invited to as many rehearsals as they'd like to attend so that they feel they can take part in the festival. Music can be posted to singers unable to make these rehearsals.

Thursday 25th November 7:00-8:30pm
