It was a such a wonderful event!  We felt privileged to watch the show and would definitely book again in the future. We thoroughly enjoyed our festive evening and a great family memory in 2023 to treasure!

Anthea Richards


Had a lovely evening for our first Christmas as new Salopians! Performance was amazing & lovely being so close to Christmas Eve so would definitely attend more concerts. St  Chads was a lovely venue. You could have played all night!

Gemma Goodman


We all thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful programme of Christmas pieces, pitched perfectly for my 91 year old mum and 16 year old daughter. What a treat to experience such a high quality performance right on your doorstep! Please don’t wait until Christmas to visit again Matt!
