Weald & Downland Christmas Market – Sunday 15th November 2015

A little late, here are photos from the Weald & Downland Christmas Market and a lovely comment from Emily. Thank you Emily and to all the photo contributors.

What a way to blast the dismal rain away! Lovely, festive, rousing songs beautifully sung! Thanks to John C for organising it, thanks to Dave G for leading the first set and thanks to you all for your enthusiastic participation, delightful voices and festive hats. The harmonies, both practised and spontaneous, were lovely and we made a good big sound. I think it might have been the heavy grey sky and chilly drizzle that made a number of you request we leave out 'Christmas is now...', but actually I missed it being there in the mix! I think it has a depth and a passion which would have been a good addition to the Christmas market, and it does sound strong and rich when we sing it. I do hope you go for it at Haywards Heath, whatever the weather! Thanks again everyone. I was told by one of the listeners afterwards that he'd been very moved by our energy and song, and it had been the best part of his day.
Hooray!
Emily
