Celebrate a family Christmas with Chester Music Society Choir, Chester Philharmonic Orchestra and the children of Chester Cathedral Saturday Singing club. We also extend a very warm welsome to our guest presenter Lemn Sissay. Lemn Sissay is a British author and broadcaster, official poet of the 2012 London Olympics and, since 2015, chancellor of the University of Manchester.

Lemn Sissay released his first book of poetry in 1988 at the age of 21, and since the age of 24 he has been a full-time writer, performing internationally. He recently presented Origin Stories on BBC Radio 4.

In addition to many of the old favourite carols the programme will include The Time of Snow by Bob Chilcott, John Rutter's Jesus Child and Enrico Morricone's Gabriel's Oboe.

Saturday Singing Club is a fun, relaxed club for primary school children aged 6 and above and performs at services in the Cathedral throughout the year including Mothering Sunday, Harvest and at the Christmas Eve Crib Service.
