This festive feast is Victoria Simmonds' second appearance at the Guildhall - she delighted the audience at the organ's launch concert in October 2008 with her incredible voice and diversity of styles. Richard Hills is renowned as the country's top theatre and concert organist and is equally at home with marvellous orchestral arrangements, popular golden melodies or classical masterpieces. At the Guildhall he has one of the UK's most musically diverse and versatile instruments in the form of the unique Compton theatre and concert organ. A full orchestra in one incredible instrument and if you've not heard it before, now is the ideal opportunity! Richard provides the backbone to the whole proceedings today and will fill the great auditorium with the organ's wonderful sounds. With a superb seasonal selection from traditional carols to Christmas singalongs, a festive atmosphere and a host of talent, this is a not-to-be-missed event for all the family. Tickets, available from the Guildhall box office, are priced at £12 with £9 for concessions. HWS Associates
