The Royal Albert Hall
Sunday 13 December 2015
On 13th December, members and guests gathered at
Stocklund Square at an unearthly hour, for a coach trip to
attended the Christmas Carol Concert at the Albert Hall for the
afternoon performance. It was wonderfully festive, colourful and
of good cheer!
Of course, all of the carols were familiar, but without doubt the
audience participation added to a magical performance. The
first rate, and the guest soprano seemed to thoroughly enjoy herself -
and sang well. All left the venue uplifted and still singing!
The coach driver, Conrad, then gave us a tour of the West End to view
the Christmas Lights, and went well beyond his duty in doing so.
Whilst some lights were slightly disappointing, others were well
excellent, and for many on board, without the tour there would have
been no opportunity of seeing them. So thanks to Conrad, and to
Gwen for her splendid organisation, as usual.
