Last weekend saw the 41st Annual Christmas Concert by the choir and friends at St John the Evangelist Church in Worsthorne, near Burnley, Lancashire. There were two performances – on Friday evening and on Saturday afternoon.

The children’ choir from the local primary school also performed as special guests on the Friday night. The programme was directed by Martin Waterson and our friend Tony Cummings was the compere. P1040079 P1040081 P1040082

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first half of the concert comprised songs from the full choir with soloist Caroline Taylor, Paul Jennings (a monologue) and Ken Hollas plus the children’s choir.

Then 2 Shades of Grey performed opening with “Scarlet Ribbons“. Tony Cummings joined in for “Rocking around the Xmas tree‘ and two Everly Brothers songs. On the Saturday performance they substituted “Have yourself a Merry Little Xmas” for the Everly’s songs.P1040108

After the interval the choir performed a cantata by Joseph Martin “A Winters Grace” which incorporated readings from the bible, read by Fr John Paul and familiar carols.

Christmas really does start in Worsthorne!
