2016 Christmas Spectacular

THE Ghyll Singers of Ulverston with MD Deborah Milledge share the Kendal Town Hall stage with Kendal Concert Band on Friday (December 9, 7.30pm) for the band’s Christmas Spectacular.
The band has supported the local branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association for many years now and hopes to beat all previous fundraising efforts with this concert full of festive cheer.
The programme ranges from the peaceful Shepherd’s Pipe Carol, to foot tapping tunes and a special narration of The Night Before Christmas with musical accompaniment. KCB is directed by Becki Clifford-Perkins.
