Its countdown time. All the work we have put in for the last six weeks is coming together. Newport Folk Club, Newport Community Choir, Willin Wimmin and a selection of local musicians and singers have banded together to bring you Carols at the Substation.
For the last two weeks we have all spent Friday evenings crammed into the Scout Hall. We've tweaked and rehearsed to within an inch of our lives, going home to dream of crotchets, demi-semi-quavers and large, looming conductors batons.
We've learned songs in 15th Century Latin and South African. We've also re-learned some traditional Chrissy Carols. We're all feeling a bit clever, and just itching to perform.
The show starts at 7.30 sharp, and ends at 9pm. No mush, no fuss, no long, indulgent speeches. Just good, wholesome entertainment. Cost is just a gold coin donation. Hope to see you there, at our own fabulous Substation, 1 Market St. Newport.
