A LOCAL chamber choir of experienced amateur singers is preparing to hold an annual show in Andover next month.

The Harmonium Singers will be hosting a carol concert at St Mary's Church on Saturday, 16 December at 7.30pm.

The seasonal charity concert has become a regular Christmas event in the town.

And there’s nothing like a choir to create that special seasonal atmosphere in the true spirit of Christmas.

As always there will be a popular mix carols old and new, with choral arrangements of well-known favourites and carols for all to sing.

This year there will also be recent pieces by Alexander L’Estrange and Iain Quinn, all combined with seasonal readings and festive interval refreshments.

Marcus Reeves will be at the organ and Bruce Randall will be preparing to be this year's conductor.

It is set to all add up to a mouth-watering proposition, so get your tickets early from The Lights, Newbury Building Society or choir members.

Tickets to this anticipated show cost £8.00.

Alternatively you can buy a ticket at the door on the night for £10 and under-14s can go in for free.

Proceeds this year go to Andover Crisis and Support Centre.
