A singalong Santa session being staged for the first time by a hospice fundraising team aims to make a musical contribution to the festive season.
The Hitchin Boys’ School event on Sunday, December 14, is a first for the Garden House Hospice and organisers hope supporters will be quick to back the innovation.
They are keen to stress that it’s not just another carol concert, because the main hall at the Grammar School Walk campus will be filled with singing Santas and rhythmic reindeer.
It’s billed as a unique family evening to get you into the spirit of Christmas, with entertainment provided by three expert ensembles – Stevenage Male Voice Choir, the choir from St Thomas More Junior School in Letchworth and Singing Aloud, which draws members from across North Herts.
Mulled wine and mince pies will be available to put everyone in the mood and the evening will end with a good old Christmas singalong.

Head of fundraising Karen Rabjohn said: “Even if you can’t hold a note and think a quaver is a savoury snack, you can still come along and join in.
“Santa himself is coming along to see all the children – and some of the adults to check they have been behaving.”
