A representative of the Salisbury Street Pastors charity gave an insightful and entertaining overview of the way they work to keep young people safe during the early hours when they may be at risk and the Reverend Steve Hawkes gave a seasonal prayer to close a very enjoyable concert.

A student at Bishop Wordsworth school, Benjamin Baker, performed two organ works, the “Menuet Gothique” from Suite Gothique by Leon Boellmann and “Noel,Noel,Noel Tidings now we bring”, a medley of carols by Carol Hamlim.
