On Wednesday night, the annual Christmas Concert took place in the glorious surroundings of the Great Hall at Matfen Hall, by kind permission of the owners, former Mowden Parents Sir Hugh and Lady Anna Blackett. The Concert Band was led as ever by musical director, Mick Fowlds and they played suitably Christmassy pieces to listen and to sing along to. Mrs Roberson’s choir sang superbly as did Mrs Lord’s individual singers. Mr Hampton trained up the readers who entertained the audience with witty and moving modern Christmas themed readings. Individual instrumentalists played some wonderful pieces throughout the evening, accompanied by Mrs Barnes. It was a most memorable and beautiful way to kick off the Christmas season fully and was followed by delicious mince pies and drinks afterwards.
