For many people, music and Christmas are almost inseparable. The sound of carols in the open air, the magic of listening to a choir or even the most junior members of the family as they join in with the Christmas songs they have learned at school.

That’s why Oldham Choral Society have joined forces with the Ashton Band – A Championship Tier Band with conductor Philip Chalk, in their eagerly anticipated Christmas Celebration in Oldham Parish Church on Friday evening, 21st December. Starting at 7.30pm, the evening offers a feast of Christmas music from the Choir and the Band – both prominent in the Musical World of Oldham and much further afield – plus the opportunity to become a Chorister yourself as you join them in the much-loved Carols and Songs of Christmas.

A splendid way to start the Christmas weekend, tickets can be booked in advance by contacting any choir member, or you can simply squeeze in on the night! There will be seasonal refreshments to enjoy afterwards. For more information visit
