Some of the town’s brightest musical talents are being brought together on Saturday 9 December for a festive charity Christmas concert in Cheltenham College Chapel on Bath Road.

Arranged by the mayor of Cheltenham, Cllr Klara Sudbury, the concert will feature the Cheltenham College Chapel Choir and leading British tenor Richard Coxon in a programme of favourite Christmas music.
Also performing will be two local community singing groups, the popular ladies’ singing group ‘The Tuesdays’ and the ‘Caring Chorus’ which is made up of NHS staff.

Cllr Klara Sudbury says: “This will be a fantastic concert in a breathtakingly beautiful chapel, which is modelled on the world-famous King’s College Chapel in Cambridge. I am delighted that the Bishop of Gloucester, Rt Rev Rachel Treweek, has accepted my invitation to come to this event, and I warmly welcome the people of Cheltenham to join us for a wonderful evening of joyful Christmas music.”

The concert starts at 7pm. Tickets are £10 (children under 16 are free of charge) and are available from:

  • The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum in Clarence Street, telephone 01242 237431 (press number two)

Proceeds will go towards the two local charities that the Mayor is supporting during her year of office, the Hollie Gazzard Trust and the Cheltenham & Gloucester Hospitals Charity's Focus Fund.
