Bexhill Choral Society was established over 50 years ago and plays an important role in the Bexhill cultural scene. The choir is led by international conductor and composer Kenneth Roberts who has conducted at many prestigious venues, including the Royal Albert Hall and the Festival Hall.

He says "I always enjoy this time of the year and, for me, this concert marks the real beginning of the Christmas celebrations. We shall be singing a programme of music which will provide something for everybody to enjoy, with plenty of opportunity for the audience to join in the carol singing."

Soloist Claire Williamson (soprano) regularly sings with Cameo and Mantissa Opera and has performed in many master classes, most notably for Richard Rodney Bennett and Malcolm Martineau. Her operatic roles include Kate Pinkerton in Madame Butterfly, Fiordiligi in Cosi Fan Tutte and earlier this year she sang the title role in Carmen with Medway Opera. Claire has also sung at the Summer Promenade Concerts at Leeds Castle and Tonbridge Castle.

The Sussex Concert Orchestra will provide the musical accompaniment.

Admission is by programme 8 (to include mulled wine and mince pie), available from Second Spin, 14 Sackville Road, Bexhill, 01424 210894, choir members or at the door on the night.
