Cheltenham Choral Society are joined by guest musicians and the two school choirs who delighted last year's audience for our annual feast of festive music in the delightful setting of Pittville Pump Rooms. The concert will feature both new and familiar settings of carols and other Christmas music.

We will be supporting the Holst Birthplace Museum which suffered an ingress of water during torrential downpours in June 2016. This caused severe damage to three of the Museum’s period room settings and damage to another. There was also water damage to a small part of the collection which has been removed for conservation. Although much of the refurbishment is covered by insurance, they need to fundraise an additional £30,000, for repairs and costs not covered by insurance.

The ‘Help Holst’ campaign will enable them to undertake vital works to the building’s pipe work. This will protect the collections from threat and enable them to re-open our beautiful Museum once again.
