Book early for a Christmas celebration!

Tickets are now on sale for the Cotswold Life Christmas Charity Concert at Cirencester Parish Church on Saturday, December 15 at 7.30pm.

The concert is in aid of the Cotswold Care Hospice and Acorns Childrens Hospice, and will feature readings by writers and personalities including Pam Ayres, Henry Blofeld, Fiona Fullerton, Adam Henson, Penny Junor, Dame Norma Major, and Joanna Trollope.

Music will be provided by Cheltenham-based choir, The Oriel Singers, conducted by Tim Morris, who lives in Quenington, and the concert will be an entertaining celebration at the start of the festive season.

Tickets, which are already selling well, are available for 20 from the Cheltenham Everyman Theatre Box Office, on 01242 572573, or website at www.everymantheatre.org.uk. There are a limited number of Superseats at 50 which includes admission to the post-concert buffet reception in the church to be attended by many of the readers.

The concert is in memory of visionary Acorns supporter Dennis Collins, B.E.M, and his wonderful help to Acorns and Cotswold Care over many years in organising celebrity fundraising events.

Concert organiser Dudley Russell, who is married to Pam Ayres, says: This will be an unmissable evening, with a wonderful atmosphere to start the festive season. Pam has appeared at many Christmas charity concerts in the past, but this year we thought we would organise one ourselves, and invite friends to come and read for us, accompanied by the fantastic Oriel Singers.
