Sadly missed this year. HAG Rocks Christmas Show.

HAG Rocks! Choir and our talented HAG actors and crew are really missing The Christmas Show, which should have been this week, 4th & 5th Dec. Our annual event, which is so popular with us, and our audiences, sadly cannot take place. But we promise to be back next year, bigger and better than ever, to start off everyone’s Christmas celebrations with a joyous evening of music and laughter!

It’s such a long time since I’ve sent out an email to you and it seems an eternity since we were last together at choir rehearsal on a Monday night.  I know how much everyone has been missing our regular get-togethers, meeting one another & singing the music that we love so much. It has felt strange not to be working on new songs for you and we miss doing that too.
It’s such a tragedy that so much has been taken away by this ghastly virus & depriving us of such good times.
I hope you & your families have all managed to avoid coronavirus infection and if not, avoided complications. It’s clear that we won’t be able to start choir again until we’ve been vaccinated, so let’s hope that’s not going to be too far away. Obviously, we’ll get going as soon as we possibly can and it’s safe for everyone.
Do have as good a Christmas as you can in the circumstances, it’s all going to be very different this year but we have to stay safe until those vaccinations have been given.
Doris, Amanda & Charlie send you their love & very best wishes for Christmas & a much brighter & more normal 2021. We look forward to seeing you some time in the Spring & getting those vocal chords going again!
