THURSDAY, December 12 this year is an auspicious date.

Not just because of a General Election but also because it is the date of the Primrose Choir’s Christmas Concert.

Redditch and Bromsgrove residents will have an opportunity to escape from politics to enjoy an evening of Christmas music as the choir returns to Christ Church in Matchborough.

The children’s choir from Matchborough First School will be joining the choir.

A spokesman said: "They sing brilliantly and are a delightful addition to anyone’s Christmas."

"The Concert starts at 7pm. Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for children from 01527-67383 or 01527-546158 or on the door.

The Primrose Choir sings to support the Primrose Hospice, which helps local residents and their families when a life-limiting illness strikes.
