Halewood Academy’s Christmas concert is back for another year and this year, audiences will be treated to music by the prestigious Manchester Camerata Brass Ensemble.

The event brings Halewood Community Choir and local schools – each of Halewood’s primary schools and Halewood Academy – together to perform traditional Christmas classics including Child in a Manger, Deck the Halls, and Silent Night.

Full list of schools taking part:

•  Yew Tree Primary School

•  Plantation Primary School

Manchester Camerata, who has the proud title of UK Orchestra of the Year for 2017, perform alongside young people to promote personal and social development which can improve confidence and raise self-esteem. As a registered charity, the orchestra promotes social change and encourages music to be used as a way for people to make positive changes.

With Manchester Camerata being quoted by The Times as “Probably Britain’s most adventurous orchestra” and talented local pupils ready to spread Christmas spirit more than ever, this year’s event is one not to miss.

Mr Jums’ Christmas event is at Halewood Academy, The Avenue L26 1UU on Tuesday 11 December 2018 from 7pm. To buy your tickets, please call Halewood Town Council on 443 2063. Tickets are just £5.
