Thanks to all of our musicians, singers, supporters and followers who helped make our Christmas Concert go so well yesterday – the Great Hall was packed and it was a lovely start to the festive season!

With ticket sales and donations, we achieved approximately £900 towards our annual donation to the Barts Cancer Unit.  This is the most we have ever made at a concert!!

The choir start again on Friday 11th January 2019.

In the meantime, on behalf of BAFCO, thank you for your support and generosity.

Wishing you the best for 2019.
