The Lea Singers on stage at Harpenden Public Halls at Christmas

Harpenden Public Halls will once again host the Lea Singers’ annual Christmas Concert, FestiveLea, an evening of uplifting singing, popular carols, with free mulled wine, mince pies and festive cakes.

With a selection of well-known carols for audience and choir interspersed with some beautiful (and occasionally silly) numbers for choir, this is the perfect start to your Christmas break.

We will be performing Ring the Bells by Paul Fincham, in support of homeless charity, Crisis.

There will be a charity raffle in support of The Hospice of St Francis to win some fabulous hampers. The Hospice of St Francis is a charity which helps 2,000 local people and their families, in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, to live their precious lives well through improving symptoms, achieving personal goals and helping them to feel safe.
