The renowned organist Shean Bowers and Jean Kelly, one of the UK’s most gifted professional harpists, perform solos as well as accompanying the choir in this concert of beautiful seasonal music., an enchanting mix of favourite melodies from across the centuries. As well as the inclusion of a small selection of compelling narrations, pertaining to the time of year read by the wonderful Dr Mick Gower, there will also be the opportunity for everyone to join with the choir in singing two well-known seasonal hymns.

Our concert will receive an extra special Seasonal touch, as it will coincide with the launch, in the church, of Glastonbury’s Christmas Tree Festival!  This annual event, which has been running since 2009, will see local schools, churches, businesses, charities and individuals donating a tree and decorating it to their own theme – as many as 50 trees are expected to be decorated and lit, in what promises to be a spectacular display.

Tickets: Adults £15 & £10 – Under 16’s 50% discount
