Celebration of Christmas

 On the day that Santa was seen touring around Uppingham, students from UCC were performing their annual Christmas Concert at the Parish Church. Mulled wine and mince pies no doubt helped everyone get into the Christmas spirit from the start.

The band played, the choir sang and soloists entertained. The thirty or so items on the programme were interspersed with readings and congregational carols supported by the college band, augmented by members of the Uppingham Community Jazz & Soul Band. As the vicar said at the start of the concert, our Celebration Concerts always help to get people into the mood for Christmas and surely the last two items alone would ensure this - Winter Wonderland sung by Barnaby Williams in 7AJ and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas sung by Tess Davenport in 8DC.

Have a happy Christmas everyone.
