 Our talented musicians and choir, superbly led by Miss Thompson, are bringing festive joy to the local community with a number of events leading up to Christmas.

The choir recently performed a range of festive tunes, including Silver Bells and Christmas Lullaby, for the residents and staff at Upton Dene Residential and Nursing Home in Caldecott Close, Upton, during Upton Dene's ‘decking the halls’ party, complete with festive treats, and a Christmas tree light switch on.
