The Band of the Royal British Legion, Leiston

Get in the festive spirit with this sparkling Suffolk line-up for our Christmas extravaganza.

Official anthem singer for the England Rugby teams and a regular on BBC Songs of Praise, soprano Laura Wright has performed at the Royal Albert Hall, Westminster Abbey and even The Great Wall Of China, but is proud to call Suffolk home.

Nothing warms the heart quite like a brass band at Christmas and we are looking forward to welcoming The Band of the Royal British Legion, Leiston to Snape Maltings Concert Hall for the very first time.

Following last year's sold-out performance of Messiah, the Britten Pears Chamber Choir brings a dazzling host of Christmas choral music including new music by Suffolk-based composers. Plus, there will be plenty of festive favourites for everyone to sing along with.

The varied programme is set to include, among other gems:

O Come All Ye Faithful
Joni Mitchell: Both Sides Now
Somewhere In My Memory (from Home Alone)
Electra Perivolaris: There is no Rose
Sleigh Ride
Walking In The Air (from The Snowman)
Morten Lauridsen: O Magnum Mysterium
