Karl Lattimer at CLAC 2022

Highlights from tonight’s performance

The Red House Museum garden had a lovely Christmassy feel tonight as people gathered to watch the opening of the 9th advent window.

The surprise performer Karl Lattimer had the crowd jigging and singing along to a lively set of Christmas tunes and fun songs such as Show me the way to Amarillo and Driving Home for Christmas.

The Snug in Christchurch brought over some delicious homemade cakes. A real treat!

The charity this evening was the RNLI and David Richmond-Coggan received a cheque from Charlotte Rogers from BNI Dorset their kind sponsors. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
