Christmas Cheer @ Aldborough Hatch: 15 Dec 2012

Following the sell-out success of the Concert ‘Christmas around the tree’ two years ago in 2010, St Peter’s Aldborough Hatch is bringing Christmas cheer to Redbridge with a Christmas treat of festive songs and readings from members and friends of St Peter’s.

Entitled, appropriately enough, ‘Christmas Cheer’ the evening will include well-loved Christmas songs and carols, and reading from the likes of John Betjeman and Charles Dickens.

Taking part will be members of St. Peter’s Choir and Church, who will be joined by members of the Ilford Operatic and Dramatic Society – whose most recent show was ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ at the Kenneth More Theatre.

The Concert on Saturday 15th December will take place in the historic and beautiful surroundings of the 150 year old St. Peter’s Church in Aldborough Road North. Seasonal refreshments, including mulled wine and mince pies, will be served during the interval.

The Revd. Kate Lovesey, Priest–in-Charge, said: “This will be my first Christmas at St Peter’s and ‘Christmas Cheer’ promises to be a great start to the festive season. A warm welcome awaits and we look forward to welcoming friends old and new from far and wide.”

Tickets are £7 including seasonal refreshments and may be obtained from Yvonne Jeffries (0208 599 7250). Doors open 7pm for 7.30pm. St. Peter’s Church is in Aldborough Road North – Post Code IG2 7QN.
