Packed house for the Samaritans

Christchurch Priory resounded with Vocal Music as Bournemouth’s Biggest Boy-Band joined forces with The Orlando Singers, Wessex Harmony and Fiona Aucott a local Soprano for an eclectic concert of vocal and choral music.

Last few tickets remaining!

A limited number of tickets remain for our very own ‘3 Choirs Festival’ this Saturday, 15th March at St Ambrose, Westbourne.
