By a roaring fire and underneath a lamp post on a bridge over the cut the quire members sang to huge crowds of appreciative merry makers. Holding their own against a brass band, barrel organ, a drumming band and numerous other carol singing groups and still with all that wondrous Christmas cacophony of sound people stopped and listened.
Later a performance was given to a small but attentive audience in the Chapel. A very enjoyable night of Christmas Cheer.
No supper tonight but most Quire members indulged in the museums legendary fish and chips.
Yo ay sin such a bostin night the wik befoa Christmus fowa yonks.
The Quire, singers and musicians, were lucky enough to be invited to perform at St Mary's festival of Christmas Trees and what a festival it was, inside this wonderful church were hundreds of beautifully decorated trees.
The Quire sang Christmas carols and played a selection of dance tunes to the full church. An amazing turnout for the festival.
Village Band Musicians were in good form.
Quire members always enjoy singing the many Christmas Carols even when there are 4 versions of WSWTFBN to get through.
As usual we sang for our supper and mulled wine, what a finish to the evening. Thank you the kind people of St Mary's.
