Christmas Cambria Choir concerts - today, tomorrow, and Thursday


TODAY AT THE HERNE HILL MARKET  from 2pm, the Cambria Choir will be making good use of the piano, and the good folks from Poet's Corner will be handing out carol sheets for a singalong.


If you're not about for then, come to the Cambria tomorrow night, for our official Christmas gig. Free entry. It's always packed so you might want to bag a table a little earlier. 


And our final gig of the year will be on Thursday, 20th December at the Commercial pub, opposite Herne Hill Station. 


Then we'll be taking a well deserved rest until January!
