Christmas Music Night 2023
We held an ‘American Songbook at Christmas’ with George Hewitt in 2021. In 2022 we hosted two nights of music; Cheryl Evnever and Jon Valender’s ‘An Italian Operatic Christmas’, and a Miranda Heldt’s 1920s Christmas. All were such successes that we have booked another night of music this year. Thursday 21st December. #musicnights
