We always start our Christmas season with our annual Christmas Concert at St Peter Church Caversham. It is free entry, with a donation on exit which is split between the Sainsbury Singers and St Peter Church. Mince pies, mulled wine and a selection of beautiful Christmas songs, both traditional and a bit less traditional. Start December feeling Christmassy with the Sainsbury Singers.
Saturday 8th December at 3pm, St Peter Church, Caversham – Free entry
The Berkshire Christmas Festival
This year we are starting our Christmas carols in November! Whilst this might be a bit early for some people, we will be performing at the Berkshire Christmas Festival at Newbury Showground on Sunday 11th November.
We will be performing twice – at 11am and 12.30pm – and singing a selection of our favourite Christmas carols, and our own Sainsbury Singers version of Jingle Bells.
If you’d like to see us performing at this event (and enjoy the festive markets, food and other events happening at the Christmas Festival), you can get tickets here: http://www.classicfestivalstickets.co.uk/?fbclid=IwAR0pc2JFvY_PyRt6IUjRSofD22jFXnldAy6axY34XpGBsklfvfYZyN_roXk
Throughout December we perform Christmas carols at local supermarkets around Reading to spread Christmas cheer around Reading and do some important fundraising for our society. Below are the dates and locations of where you might encounter us this year. If you see us, please do join in, request your favourite carol and pop a few coins in our collection bucket!
