Poster for Christmas concert at Highcliffe Castle

The programme the band performed was spectacular and very well thought out for our audience. There was something for everyone and the balance of classical, pop and cheese was perfect. The band were totally professional and it was clear that their shared love of performing simply gripped the audience.”
