    Description: St Cross Church is one of Winchester's most iconic buildings, and it provides the ideal venue for our Christmas concert.  We will be performing a selection of Christmas music old and new and, as usual, the audience will be encouraged to join us in some of the most popular and well-loved carols.

    This will be our final concert under the leadership of  Katherine Dienes-Williams, who is moving on after 10 exciting and fulfilling years as our Musical Director.

    This concert will be held in accordance with guidance from the Trustees of St Cross on coronavirus procedures, which currently involve the audience wearing masks (unless medically exempt). It will unfortunately not be possible to serve interval drinks.
