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

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.

There will be a charity raffle to win some fabulous hampers.


Tickets £15 (£5 under-18s and students).
