GALA 20th ANNIVERSARY CHRISTMAS SHOW
Twenty years ago the organisers of Haslemere’s Millennium celebrations decided to stage a community concert to bring together performers from all over the town and beyond. The Christmas Cracker was born and, each Christmas since, has been entertaining full houses of enthusiastic local people who consider the show an integral part of the festive scene in Haslemere.
As usual, this year’s event features seasonal carols, songs, readings, comic verse and a mini pantomime, with lots of audience participation. Singers come from choirs, churches and music societies around the town who are joined by children from St Bartholomew’s School. Local actors provide the comedy slots. This year we also have a return visit from a superb local violinist who will be joined by a fellow Royal Academy Master’s student to perform a couple of items.
The event takes place at the Haslemere Hall on Saturday 21st December at 7.30 pm. Tickets, costing £12 or £10 for adults or £5 for children under 12, will be available from the hall box office (01428 642161) or online after Monday 7th October.
The event is usually a sell-out so do get your tickets early and come along and enjoy the fun with all the family.
