Christmas Festivities!

Park Carols with Ukes and Brass

St Albans Brass Band and The Pluckwits Ukulele Band will be entertaining park-goers with Carols and Festive songs on Sunday 12th December from 2:00pm till 3:00pm at the Pavilion in Clarence Park. The music is provided free and the Pavilion will be selling mulled wine, mince pies and hot chocolate.

Lyric sheets will be provided so why not go along and shake the 2021 blues with a rousing chorus of Jingle Bells, White Christmas, Frosty the Snowman and Fairytale of New York?

Vicky Arlidge, founder of the The Pluckwits, said ‘I absolutely love this unique combination of ukuleles and a brass band! Throw in a few Santa hats, a dose of Christmas spirit and some boozey hot chocolates (or mulled wine!) and this performance cannot fail to bring joy to the St Albans community!’

Richard Sved, Chair of St Albans Brass Band said ‘we’ve collaborated with the Pluckwits before and it’s excellent fun to work with such enthusiastic and talented performers. We were going to play a concert together last year, but then the first lockdown happened so this is unfinished business!’

As a taster, we recorded this lovely tune together in the first lockdown, but are hoping to be able to play it for you in real life.
