We will be welcoming families and children of all ages to our "Christmas Adventures" concert on Saturday December 5th at 3.00pm at Holy Trinity Church on the Broadway, within walking distance of the heart of Wimbledon town centre.
Directed and narrated by award-winning composer and conductor Leo Geyer, join the WSO for a Christmas adventure like no other. Opening with joyous dances from the Nutcracker and sing-a-long carols, Christmas receives an unexpected guest – The Mountain King. After explosive dances from the Firebird, Santa returns in his Sleigh for Christmas merriment.
