40+ Singers from Burbage's very own community choir sang to entertain visitors to the Burbage Methodist Church, Christmas Tree Festival. The Church was packed with folks of all ages who made sure of a place by arriving whilst the choir was still warming up! The background of beautifully decorated Christmas trees and the buzz of excitement from children and adults alike was perfect for a real good Christmas sing. The audience showed their prowess as they sang along with a carol medley and other songs.
The Choir looked as one in their new blue scarves and sang as one through a mixed repertoire from South Africa, Croatia, Australia, Germany and a few from the UK as well. It is almost unbelievable to see and hear what has been achieved in only 8 weeks of rehearsals. The audience were clearly impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the event. The vote of thanks summed up the feeling of the event "...you've really made our Festival Weekend a joy - thank you very much".
