Songs for Christmas

Stir the spirits with some festive songs

Singing festive songs is the perfect way to warm the cockles and blast away the winter blues. This winter your child might be taking part in the Young Voices choir. Thousands of children will be gathering at four venues across the country, to perform Christmassy songs and other feel-good hits, with a little help from star performers Dionne Bromfield and All Angels. Venues incldue the LG Arena in Birmingham November 23, 24, 25, at the MEN arena in Manchester 29, 30, at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield December 1, 2, 3 and at the 02 in London December 6, January 11, 12.

Meanwhile, Midge Ure, co-writer of Band Aid hit Don't They Know It's Christmas? has lent his support to pupils from the choir at Prior Park College who are releasing a charity single for the festive season. Written by college parent Tessa Cox and performed by the children, Christmas In My Heart is about a boy who wishes his father would come home from the war, with proceeds going to charity Help for Heroes. The track is available to download from Midge's music website.
