CHA News â€“ December 2006
Welcome to the first official CHA email newsletter, keeping you in touch with all the latest news from the CHA, your fellow Old Blues and the School.
CHA Carol Concert
Wednesday 13th December, 6.00pm St Sepulchre without Newgate, London.
If you havenâ€™t got your tickets already, place your order today for the hottest show in town! Your chance to enjoy some classic Christmas carols performed by an Old Blue scratch choir, join in with your favourite songs and listen to specially chosen festive readings. Order your tickets today by visiting the CHA website at http://www.chassociation.org/events/car ... rt2006.php or call the CHA Office to reserve your place. There is still room to squeeze one or two more into the choir or the brass band, so if you want to volunteer, get yourself a ticket and drop us a line so we know who to expect at the rehearsal.
Tickets cost Â£5.00 and Â£2.50 for children, and include mulled wine and mince pies after the concert.
Young (and Young at Heart) Old Blues will be interested to know that the revelry will continue following the concert at the Bishopâ€™s Finger pub just around the corner from St Sepulchreâ€™s. This will give you more chance to catch up with old friends, reward the outstanding choristers and enjoy the Christmas spirit. You can find a map to the pub at: http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srf?x ... 9&z=0&ar=Y but there will be signage and guidance following the concert. All are welcome, so drop us a line at the CHA Office if you want to know more.
