Outing to the Royal Albert Hall Christmas Carol Singalong 16 December 2017

This was the final outing for 2017.

It was a cold day but the coach, when it arrived, was nice and warm for us; everyone was early so we were able to depart on time. The journey’s there and back were very good. We reached Kensington in plenty of time to have a meal or a coffee. One of our photos shows 2 members standing outside a hotel and this is how they plan to decorate the outside of their homes!! The concert was a sell out; people were even standing in the top balcony. Jonathan Cohen was the conductor and he encouraged us to raise the roof of the Royal Albert Hall by clapping our hands, stamping our feet and singing our hearts out through a jamboree of fun filled much loved carols. He welcomed back his special guest Louise Dearman and the London Concert Chorus and London Concert Orchestra accompanied them. Many of the audience were entwined in Christmas lights and tinsel. The atmosphere was full of enjoyment and laughter. We all got our exercise with the 12 days of Christmas rising from our seats on “5 golden rings”; and standing swaying arms for several other carols. The afternoon was very pleasant and put us in the Christmas spirit mood. Pam
