Christmas celebration with Good Afternoon singers

November 27 2018

SINGING in the Afternoon  is proving to be a great pastime for hundreds of people across the region. In the weeks up to Christmas, the nine Good Afternoon Choirs will raise thousands of pounds for local charities.

 Started by West Country music man, Grenville Jones in 2009 with the Bath Good Afternoon which meets on Thursdays, other choirs have followed in recent years across the South West. 

 Each choir chooses a local charity to benefit from local concerts and fundraising through the year and the last rehearsal is an open carol service with free admission. 

 The Bristol Good Afternoon Choir meets on Mondays at Westbury-on-Trym Methodist Church from 1pm - 3pm, led by Ben England. 

Their Christmas celebration takes place on Monday December 10 from 2pm – 2.45pm at Westbury-on-Trym Methodist Church and a retiring collection will be taken for The Great Big Kidney Thank You which is fundraising for The Southmead Hospital Charity Transplant Fund. They have already raised over £1,000.
