The Band of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment and the Performance Studios Choir came to St Chad’s on Sunday evening 13th December for a community concert. It was a privilege to hear the local talent on display. The Mayor and Mayoress of Knowsley, Councillor David Smithson and Mrs Smithson were honoured guests along with many other local residents and community members.
The first part of the concert was a selection of Christmas music that brought some cheer and light for a cold and dark winter time. The second part introduced some Christmas Carols that celebrated the birth of Jesus – a light to lighten the darkness of our own hearts and society.
The Kirkby Christmas Concert is a real spectacle to see and delight to hear in the inspiring surroundings of St Chad’s Church.
We hope to develop the community festival feel of this event further in future years and any suggestions are welcome of further talent in Kirkby that could be on show.
