This weekend I went into a busy Wokingham for the Christmas Saturday entertainment. In Market Place there was St. Paul’s church choir singing carols, and giving out mince pies, and warm mulled drinks, which were much appreciated by those who stopped to listen.
Next I went to the annual Christmas sing-a-long in the Town Hall which was led by the Cameo Singers. On entering the hall, it had been set-up like a cabaret with tables and chairs to sit at, with more mince pies and mulled wine on offer. The tables filled up very quickly so eventually it was standing room only left at the back. This was a light jolly programme with carols sung by the Cameo singers, carols for audience participation, and funny Christmas readings. After the performance I was able to mingle with Wokingham Town Council mayors past and present who were there.
By the time that the sing-a-long had finished, St. Paul’s choir had moved on and Bracknell and Wokingham Community Band (BWCB) were set up playing yet more carols.
These events were free of charge although each group were collecting for their respective charities.
