Christmas Concert 2019 at All Saints Church

Sat, 14 Dec 2019


        and our guests, 'A Splash of Red'

Our Christmas Concert took place in All Saints’ Church, sometimes spoken of as Basingstoke's 'hidden gem', a beautiful place for this event. Little did we know that this would be our last concert for some time!  A sell out audience was treated to a superb and entertaining mix of music including songs to join in with, which they did with great gusto. We were joined by 'A Splash of Red’, a choir from Fairford in Wiltshire, who added their own entertaining twist to that Christmas perennial 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'. We couldn’t have a Christmas concert without some of the much-loved traditional carols which everyone sang accompanied by Chris Olding on the organ. It was a pleasure too, to be joined by our Mayor, Cllr Diane Taylor, a great supporter of the musical scene in Basingstoke, and her consort and husband Andy Taylor. Proceeds from this concert went to Home-Start.
