We had a lot of lovely gigs over Christmas so have decided to do one blog with all them in it!!

To kick them off in style we started our festive gigs at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire on the weekend of 15th,16th & 17th November. As expected, this incredible venue was breathtaking from the minute we drove up. Living Crafts were holding a weekend of christmas shopping at the Palace and we were asked to sing to spread festive cheer to all their shoppers. On the Friday we managed to find Pudsey for a photo as he was raising money for Children in Need. We met some great people over the weekend and look forward to returning there again soon.

On Sunday 24th November we were booked to sing for Petworth House's Christmas Fair in West Sussex. We had a wonderful day singing for everyone who was enjoying pottering round all the wonderful stalls and stopping for a mulled wine or two!

On 30th November we were invited to sing as part of the Godalming Christmas Lights Switch On in Surrey. We had a brilliant time singing for a packed high street full of people starting their festive celebrations!

Reigate on Ice launched their very first Ice Skating rink in Surrey this year and on the 2nd & 8th December we were asked to perform for them. The skating rink was set inside a fantastic circus tent fulls of german style christmas markets so people could have festive food and drink whilst watching the skaters whizz past! We sang an hour of our festive favourites to get the ice skaters in the mood and to ease the brusing when they fell over!!

On Wednesday 11th Decemeber we were booked to sing at Canary Wharf station to entertain the commuters as they left work for the day. We had a fantastic time singing and cheered up the tired Londoner's as they made their way home, we even managed to get a few dancing! DLR were running a competition to guess what was wrapped up beside us as we sang. Can you work it out?!! Ha ha.
