In March, due to the Covid-19 regulations we took our annual Hospice Concert from it’s usual home in our High Performance Centre to an outdoor venue on City Lords.
As a result of the success and festive atmosphere of being able to spend an evening outdoors listening to our talented Kingswood musicians, we have decided to host this year’s Reverend Kirkby Memorial Concert on City Lords.
Our Concert Band, Senior Choir, Junior Choir, Saxonettes, String Ensemble and Marimbas will be keeping you entertained!
