A CHOIR which performed at Disneyland Paris during the 25th anniversary celebrations of the park in April will be entertaining shoppers for free this month (December, 2017) at a North Somerset festive market.
Bristol-based Amplify will be at The White Hart in Weston In Gordano on Thursday, December 21 at 7pm to provide some rousing renditions to help spread the Christmas cheer.
Event organiser, Pilar Amores from Two Crowns Event Management in Portishead explained: “We’re delighted to have this stunning group of singers at our last event this year at The White Hart on December 21.
“The vocal harmony group performs unique arrangements written by Rachel Mason, who is Amplify’s Musical Director and a judge on Sky1’s new show Sing: Ultimate A Cappella, with added smooth moves choreographed by Emma Mason, professional dancer and choreographer for Team GB’s gymnastic squad.”
The choir will be performing a variety of music from pop, rock, jazz and musical theatre at the event in Weston In Gordano.
“This is the last of a series of five, fun festive markets we’ve held in The White Hart’s wonderful garden and tepee, with its open fire and twinkling fairy lights, so we’re really pleased such a well-respected choir will be attending on Thursday, December 21. We’ve lots of lovely stallholders coming along too, selling everything from locally-made and sourced food items to festive decorations and interesting gift ideas.”
The market starts at 4pm and runs until 9pm. A free bus will be running on a loop on the evening, to and from the Venga tapas bar in the High Street at Portishead from 4pm. The last bus back to Portishead will be at 9pm.
Chris Yeatman, who co-owns the The White Hart with her husband Mike, said: “Youngsters who come along will be able to have their faces painted for free by Brushella Face Art. We will also have a free Santa post box on site, so children can pop their Christmas wishes in a letter and post it to Father Christmas.
“One of his elves will be dropping in to chat to your little ones and the big man himself is down to make a guest appearance too, if he can spare the time from his duties getting his sleigh packed for his Christmas Eve deliveries.
“As well as all the other stallholders, we are doing a ‘mulled’ drinks stall offering mulled wine, sangria, champagne and cider.
“Our patisserie is open throughout the evening too offering warming tea and coffee to drink on-site, and cakes and artisan bread, as well as Christmas chocolates, Yule logs and panettone. People can order their Christmas goodies on the night and come and collect them nearer to Christmas if they wish too. People can also pre-order our new for this year gluten free Christmas cake.
“Our chefs are providing a chilli with rice or pizzas for shoppers to purchase and eat on site throughout the evening too.”
The Christmas Market at The White Hart in Weston in Gordano runs from 4pm until 9pm on Thursday, December 21, 2017. Amplify will be performing at 7pm.
