The ticket price will include interval refreshments of warm mince pies and a Christmas spiced fruit punch, together with a complimentary programme.

Exultate Singers has appeared on Classic FM, on BBC Radios 2, 3 and 4 and BBC television including The One Show and Songs of Praise. The choir is known for its engaging performances, making use of the building’s spatial effects with singers placed in different positions around the hall throughout the concert, enveloping the audience with stunning live surround sound.

“To come in to the glorious building of St James & the ethereal sounds of Exultate - my companion said she thought she’d gone to heaven and I quite agreed! I don’t know how you manage to maintain such a terrific standard of music with such a lovely friendly atmosphere, but please keep doing it!”
