Christmas is a time for family and fun and we  are delighted to bring a selection of concerts this Christmas and New Year to suit all tastes.  Festivities kick off with our Baroque Christmas in which conductor Laurence Cummings explores highlights from JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and Handel’s Messiah. We then ramp up the fun with our fun-packed Christmas Crackers show packed full of all your Christmas favourites old and new! We are thrilled to be returning to Exeter and Portsmouth with this entertaining evening as well as Poole this year. Our Celebration of Christmas Carols is also back – a chance to sing along in your favourite carols, and we welcome in 2022 with the return of our New Year Viennese Gala swirling with the music of the waltz king Johann Strauss.

See below for full details of all our seasonal concerts.
