THE Gainford Singers will host a seasonal concert at the village's parish church, St Mary's, on Sunday, December 16.

This year, the singers will be joined for A Festival of Carols by Locomotion, a boys' choir from Cockerton, Darlington.

Those attending will be entertained to a mix of pieces. Some will be arrangements of Christmas tunes by famous composers, such a Gustav Holst, traditional regional songs and popular carols for the audience to sing along with.

Mince pies and hot mulled wine - with a twist – will be served to members of the audience after the concert.

This year the mulled wine comes from locally made elderberry wine made by one of the choir members. Admission is £6.
