THE popular Christmas concert at St Editha’s Church will be extra special this year as Tamworth Voices will be performing for the first time with Tamworth Wind Band in this festive Christmas performance, this Saturday, December 2.
The event proceeds will be split between Macmillan Cancer Support and St Editha’s Church.
Tamworth Assembly Rooms continue ‘on tour’ this season with the annual festive favourites, as part of Tamworth Assembly Rooms on Tour.
The Mayor of Tamworth, Cllr John Chesworth, said: “It is exciting to see Tamworth Voices and Tamworth Wind Band joining forces for this spectacular show. I am delighted that both groups have agreed to donate the profits to both Macmillan Cancer Support and St Editha’s Church.
“There is no better way to start your Christmas season than enjoying this great festive themed evening and raising money for local people. It promises to be a heart-warming performance.”
Tamworth Voices will put a contemporary twist on the traditional choir; covering a wide range of musical styles and performing well known Christmas anthems. Tickets are priced £10 adults, £8 concessions. The doors open at 7pm, for a 7.30pm show and you are welcome to bring your own refreshments.
All event tickets are available via the box office: www.tamworthartsandevents.co.uk or 01827 709618. A transaction fee of £1 is payable on all online and telephone bookings.
Cllr Joy Goodall, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Environment & Culture, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to see both Tamworth Voices and Tamworth Wind Band, perform Christmas classics with a contemporary twist. This is guaranteed to bring Christmas cheer into the hearts of all who attend.
“The Arts and Events team has been working hard to ensure their groups find alternative venues until the new-look Assembly Rooms are ready to welcome them back.
We hope that people will support and continue to enjoy these very special events.”
