Hitting the right note for Christmas

(28 November 2019)

We have 84 student-led musical societies here at Durham and during December they'll be spreading some Christmas cheer around the city.

It wouldn't be Christmas without sleigh bells, carols and mince pies and this year, our student musical societies have it all. 

3 December - Escape the cold outside and join Hill Orchestra for A Winter’s Night. Proceeds from the refreshment stall will be donated to The Durham Foodbank.

4 December – Durham Dynamic’s Christmas Showcase is an evening of a cappella, featuring chart hits, old classics, and some festive tunes.

8 December - Foot Notes presents Christmas In The City, an evening of a cappella entertainment featuring your favourite Christmas carols and well-known pop tunes.

11 December - Voices choir presents Notes from a Midwinter’s Night, a Christmas Concert filled with carols, hymns, and secular songs – there's even some a cappella.

13 December - Join Durham University Concert Band and Durham University Brass Band for their annual joint Christmas Concert, including your favourite Christmas tunes and festive refreshments.
