Schools are invited to bring their choirs or bands to entertain residents, visitors, family and friends in the foyer bar at the Cliffs Pavilion, Westcliff, throughout December.
The fun takes place during lunch time on Monday 10th December, Friday 14th December, Monday 17th December and Friday 21st December.
Billed as the ‘12 Days of Christmas’, this popular free endeavour is part of Southend-on-Sea’s Legacy 2012.
It features children and young people from five-years-old upwards, singing and playing a whole range of Christmas carols.
Any schools who wish to take part should email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Another key date in the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ series is a community carol concert at Southend Bandstand in Priory Park, Victoria Avenue, on Sunday 23rd December.
For this event the Southend Band, clad in Edwardian era clothes and accompanied by local singers, will perform an hour-long Carol Singalong from 2pm until 3pm.
Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s Executive Councillor for Culture and Tourism, Derek Jarvis, said: “This series at the Cliffs Pavilion is a tremendous way to rev up for Christmas with melodious music from our children and young people. We hope as many schools as possible will leap at this chance to demonstrate their talents, and that they are warmly supported by a welcoming throng of supporters!
“Southend Band’s Community Carol Singalong at the Bandstand gives everyone the chance to join in and sing their hearts out as Christmas excitement reaches fever pitch. Just wrap up warmly and come along to share in the festivities!”
