This Winter Sight Support Hull and East Yorkshire is delighted to host its first Christmas Concert at the beautiful church of St Mary’s, in the heart of the Beverley on Saturday 1st December 2018.

Come along and celebrate the beginning of the festive season and help create a future everyone can see.

Join us at this special evening featuring the East Riding and Hull Rock Choir performing a range of contemporary songs such as 'Uptown Girl; by Billy Joel, ‘Footloose from Kenny Loggins and 'Hallelujah' by Leonard Cohen and a wide range of recent artists. As we are heading towards Christmas there will be some festive songs to add some festive spice to the evening.

The East Riding & Hull Rock Choir are one of the hundreds created nationwide over the past decade and 28,000 people currently sing within a Rock Choir. The East Riding and Hull Choir has around 65 members so St Mary’s should sound fantastic as they perform their repertoire.

East Riding and Hull Rock Choir is celebrating its second year together and are based in Driffield, Market Weighton, Beverley and Hull. They sing at a variety of events both locally and nationally. They have raised money for many local charities and are delighted to support the work of Sight Support Hull & East Yorkshire.

Local leader Anna Lusty says “Singing and friendship are at the heart of Rock Choir, members enjoy fun, uplifting sessions weekly where they can come to relax and have a laugh together. Everyone is welcome at Rock Choir, we are a non-audition, no experience needed choir, more information can be found about us at www.rockchoir.com.

Nationally they have enjoyed performing with the other 400 Rock Choirs in a giant flash mob at the Proms in the Park in the summer with over 10,000 ‘Rockies’ singing together and the Rock Choir are now looking forward to singing and spreading merriment at local Christmas festivities.

The Sight Support Hull & East Yorkshire Singing Group will also be performing at the start of the event at around 7.15pm so it promises to be a great evening of song at St Mary's in Beverley.

It’s the perfect opportunity to gather with friends and family at this festive time and support local people with sight loss. Tickets are only £5 for the event.

Angela Gregory, Income Generation and Marketing Manager of the charity says, “We are really looking forward to the hearing the massed voices of the East Riding & Hull Rock Choir and it is even better to experience this in such a fantastic setting as St Mary’s church. Why not come down to enjoy some great music alongside mulled wine and mince pies and begin your Christmas in this venue supporting Sight Support Hull & East Yorkshire”
