A LADIES choir are planning on bringing a little joy into our lives ahead of Christmas.

Oswestry Ladies Choir has announced the name of their next concert, which will be their popular annual carol event – Joy to the World – which will take place on Wednesday, December 15.

A spokesperson for the choir said: "After nearly two years of enforced silence Oswestry Ladies Choir is happy to bring the joy of Christmas to the public who has been bereft of concerts and music during the pandemic due to the unceasing and unsettling virus.

"Come and listen to song old and new, reflecting the singer’s gift for stirring emotions, retelling the Nativity story with beautiful and exiting melodies.

"The concert also includes 'Sing a Song of Christmas' a Christmas Cantata with seasonal songs; original music mingled with traditional carols in a jubilant mix. The work brings the message of Christmas in an upbeat happy sing which will have you singing as you leave the concert."

The concert will be conducted by Dawn Jaffray with accompanist Elizabeth Dobson.

It will be held at All Saints Church in Gobowen on Wednesday, December 15 at 7.45pm.

Tickets £6 with free admittance to children under-15.
