Exmouth performers welcomed in the Christmas season at the Pavilion for the 8th Great Big Christmas Sing this December.

Exmouth performers welcomed in the Christmas season at the Pavilion for the 8th Great Big Christmas Sing this December.

The crowd joined in with much loved carols accompanied by the Exmouth Community College band and were delighted by the Beacon Primary School’s tinsel-filled singing on stage! Renaissance joined the show once more to dazzle with songs from Adiemus and Adele.

Exmouth Musical Theatre Company reprised songs from their sell out show All that Jazz while three of the company’s gents gave their debut performance as three guys named Joe singing jazz Christmas classics.

Members of some of the growing La La Choirs took to the stage en-masse bringing much festive cheer and River City Chorus filled the theatre with beautiful unaccompanied harmonies.

The event was as successful as ever raising over £1,370 for charity. Over the past eight years the Big Sing has raised nearly £15,000 for the work of Christian Aid who work in the world’s poorest communities.
