Blackpool Music Service are now hosting a number of events in the run up to Christmas.
Our annual Christmas Festival takes place every year in the fabulous Empress Ballroom, within the famous Blackpool Winter Gardens.
With special guests often including the Mayor or Deputy Mayor, Councillors and a capacity audience of parents and supporters in attendance, hundreds of Blackpool pupils come together to celebrate Christmas, with host for the evening, Hayley Kay (Radio Wave's Breakfast Show).
Blackpool Music Service's Concert Band, Brass Band, BASSO, and Youth Choir, all perform a fabulous range of festive items, demonstrating the excellent standards of performance our older pupils have attained. The Primary Schools Massed Orchestra and Massed Choir demonstrate that, despite being the youngest performers on the night, they too can perform at the highest level (and have the biggest smiles on their faces whilst doing so!). Wonderful, aspirational performances are provided by our some of our Secondary School and Academy Choirs. A busy evening and packed programme, featuring Blackpool's best!
It simply wouldn't be Christmas without this event and everyone ventures into the cold with a warm glow inside!
Along with these annual events our ensembles have supported various Christmas celebrations including a performance at All Hallows Church, a Council Carol Concert at Bickerstaff House, a Christmas fundraising event at Asda and a Christmas Craft Fair to name but a few. We hope that this will continue in future years.
