Christmas in the City

Christmas in the City 2019

Thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas in the City concerts this year at the lovely Albert Hall, Nottingham and the prestigious Theatre Royal & Concert Hall. Both events were a great success with a total of 1,000+ performers from 50+ Nottingham City schools across the two concerts. We are so proud of our great city and all the talent it has to offer!

A massive thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas in the City concert at the lovely Albert Hall. The concert was fully sold out and we had a wonderful audience of 400+ people and nearly 300 city pupils representing 13 Nottingham city schools perform that evening! The concert featured RHYO Intermediate, RHYO Connect-Wind&Brass, StrOrkestra, Band Factory, Jazz Squad, Area Bands (Sherwood and East), Sing City winners and primary school choirs.


CitC @ the Royal Concert Hall, Dec 11, 2019

Christmas in the City at the Royal Concert Hall was a wonderful event this year, featuring over 600+ young people from schools all across Nottingham City! We had a great audience that encouraged and supported our performers the entire time and the children had an amazing time singing and playing their instruments.

The CitC at the Royal Concert Hall featured our amazing Robin Hood Youth Orchestra, Area Bands North, North-West, Central, West and South, the Robin Hood Youth Choir, secondary school choirs, Sing City winners and more!


Christmas in the City 2018

Both our Christmas in the City events last year were a great success. Thank you to all our young performers, their friends and family who came to support them and the wonderful Nottingham City community that celebrated the festive time of the year with us.

Thank you again for such a wonderful evening of festive music for all the children. Parents and children all went home very happy and excited, and I think all the children were thoroughly inspired to continue with their music making...To think that most of those children don't have to pay for music lessons and they get all this incredible music for free, it is a great credit to all of your staff at the Music Service.
