Previous Concert
We return to St Matthew’s Church for our Carols for All! concert, and we are delighted to welcome back the Junior School Choir from our regular rehearsal venue, Northampton High School. The Junior Choir will sing a selection of their favourite carols for us, join us for the performance of two superb carol medleys by Cecila McDowall, and help lead the audience in singing popular carols including Away in a manger, Good King Wenceslas, O come, all ye faithful, and O little town of Bethlehem.

Earlier in the day the choir will host their first Family Carol Singalong, aimed at children and young families who would find our regular 7:30pm start time too late … this will be held at 4:00pm and will last an hour. In addition to a number of traditional carols, the Singalong will include Christmas classics such as Frosty the Snowman, Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Jingle Bells, Let it snow, Mary’s Boy Child, Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is coming to Town, The Twelve Days of Christmas, White Christmas, and Winter Wonderland. Our sparkly organist will also give us a rendition of Sleigh Ride on the powerful organ of St Matthew’s Church! Please see the separate listing for details of how to book tickets for the Singalong.
