A Festive Concert of Christmas Music and Carols

Banner with 'A Christmas Celebration' text

It simply wouldn’t be Christmas without WCB’s magical Christmas concerts! Jam-packed full of all your favourite Christmas songs and carols, and with just a hint of silliness, this is the perfect way to kick-start your festive season – definitely one not to be missed! This year, we’ll be giving two performances – an hour-long family-friendly performance at 3:00pm, followed by a full length concert at 6:00pm. 

Important information for the 3:00pm performance – in order to improve visibility for children, we have removed the front few rows of chairs and are offering unallocated seating on the floor in front of the seats. Please free to choose which type of seating you require but note that it will not be possible to change the type of seating you have booked on the day. If you are booking spaces for the floor area, note that the floor is carpeted but please feel free to bring a cushion to make your experience more cosy!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Staying Safe: What to expect at our Christmas Concerts

Following a successful Autumn concert, we’ll again be employing the following safety measures for our Christmas concerts. Please read them carefully so that you know what to expect and what we ask of you when attending.

COVID-19 Symptoms – if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, new and persistent cough, or a loss of/change in sense of taste or smell), you should not attend the concert, even if your symptoms are mild. In this case, you should self-isolate and take a PCR test in line with government guidance on testing and self-isolation.

Seating – since 19th July, government guidance has permitted performance venues to open at full capacity so in line with current practice across the arts sector, bookings will not be socially distanced and you are likely to be sitting next to other people. Since Woodley Baptist Church has a flat floor, we have offset the rows of seats to offer you the best possible view.

Masks – Whilst you’re inside the venue, we ask that you please wear a face covering at all times out of consideration for those around you, unless you are exempt for medical reasons. The band will wear face coverings when not performing and our front of house team will also wear face coverings. Children under the age of 11 are not required to wear face coverings.

Ventilation – there are no mechanical fresh air ventilation systems at the venue, however we will be keeping small windows behind the band open to maintain some supply of fresh air. External doors will be opened before the performance and during the interval to help circulate fresh air. This may cause the temperature of the venue to drop slightly, so you may wish to bring an extra layer for during the interval.

Cleaning – the venue will be cleaned before the day of the concert. Hand sanitiser will be available and we would ask you to make use of this and clean your hands frequently.

NHS Test & Trace – as part of the booking process, we will ask you for a telephone number or email address for your party so that we have an accurate record of who has attended the concert.

Refreshments – unfortunately, we will not be able to serve refreshments on this occasion.

We have completed a health and safety risk assessment for the performance which includes risks from COVID-19. Please get in touch with the box office to request a copy if you’d like to read it.
