The St James’s Singers present This Starry Night – a celebration of Christmas with festive music and readings which will take place on Saturday, 22 December at St Mary’s Church, Warwick starting at 7.30pm. Readings will include some inspiring poetry together with prose to capture the spirit of Christmas and to bring a smile to all. Our Reader is actor Andrew Wincott. He was born in Banbury and graduated from Christ Church, Oxford. He is perhaps best known as the voice of Adam Macy in the long running radio series, The Archers. He has performed in many radio parts including Simon in Clare in the Community, Newland Archer in The Age of Innocence and Steerforth in David Copperfield. In theatre, Andrew has performed Shakespeare, Shaw and Molière in UK repertory theatres. He has also played the Actor in The Woman In Black, Vronsky in Anna Karenina and Rochester in Jane Eyre and in 2010 appeared in Luc Bondy’s Young Vic/Vienna Festival production of Sweet Nothings. He’s been a member of the BBC Radio Drama Company, has created voices for countless computer games and has recorded over 100 audiobooks. The music will include a blend of familiar and less well known carols, including several favourites for the audience to join in. The choir’s pieces include haunting works by Francis Poulenc and Morten Lauridsen as well as pieces by Bach and Handel.
