Christmas cheer is coming early to York


12:01am 15th October 2011

Christmas is coming early this year, when the Lord Mayor of York, Councillor David Horton, hosts the annual Christmas Cheer Concert fund event next month.

The York Philharmonic Male Voice Choir will be making a special appearance for a concert in the Guildhall on Sunday 16 October.

This evening in concert is an annual event in both the choir and the civic diaries and is enjoyed by many every year.

The evenings programme includes a wide selection of music, with songs from popular shows, light opera, jazz and for the romantics - selected romantic love songs.

The concert raises much needed funds to support the Lord Mayor's Christmas Cheer reception, which takes place in December each year.

The Christmas Cheer reception is a chance for 200 elderly residents to meet new friends and socialise at what can be a lonely time of year for some people.

The reception, which takes place in the Assembly Rooms, is open to residents over the age of 60.  Requests for places will be offered at the end of October with local publicity and all names will be drawn out of a hat.

The event is supported annually by the York Philharmonic Male Voice Choir.

Tickets for the Christmas Cheer Concert are on sale now and are £9 each. 

They are available from the civic office at the Guildhall or the York Theatre Royal Box Office.
