Highlights of tonight’s event at The Priory
The special event on Friday 2nd December was held inside the Priory, and featured a fantastic performance of seasonal songs from The Bournemouth Male Voice choir.
The audience applauded original arrangements of traditional carols Silent Night, Away in A Manger and The Carol of the Bells, plus an extra treat when the highly talented Alexandra Burstow gave a moving solo performance. What a fabulous evening!
