Carols Dec 3rd

December 3, 2012

This evening Elaine & I went to Portsmouth Guildhall for the annual Portsmouth Schools Carol Concert.

On a dry and fairly mild evening, hundreds of children from Portsmouth’s primary schools lined the steps of the Guildhall and sang ten Christmas Carols and festive songs, with many more people crowding the Guildhall Square.

The Concert was preceded by the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor Frank Jonas, switching on the lights on a very tall Christmas Tree using a Light Sabre!

It was a pleasure to hear the children singing, and most of them seemed to know all the words to every Carol.
