Christmas Concert Saturday 23 December
Having abandoned last Sunday’s rehearsal due to the snowy weather there are now only two rehearsals  before concert day. Please make every effort to attend these so that we deliver an excellent performance. The next rehearsal is at Walton this Friday, 15 December. And please remember that the southern entrance to Walton Hall from the Walton Roda remains closed.

Our Reader this year is David Troughton. David has had a long and illustrious career with both the RSC and the Royal National Theatre. His numerous television roles include Outnumbered, Doctor Who, All the King’s Men, A Very Peculiar Practice and New Tricks. He also continues to play Tony Archer in the long running BBC radio series, The Archers. This year he has been much in demand at the RSC, playing the title role in Titus Andronicus and Falstaff in The Merry Wives of Windsor.
