We’d love as many supporters as possible from around the county and further afield to take part in the traditional Christmas carols and festive musical entertainment and help us fight back against meningitis.
The line-up this year includes performances from Cheltenham’s Pamoja Gospel Choir, musicians James Kilmister and Paul Martin, Highnam C of E Primary Academy and singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hattie Briggs. The evening will be compered by BBC Radio Gloucestershire’s Dominic Cotter.
Tickets are available from our website here and can also be bought on the door. They cost just £5 for aisle seats and £10 in the nave, with group discounts available. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. As well as entry to the concert, the ticket price includes a programme and a mince pie.
Organiser Leah Wynn, our South West Community Fundraiser, said, “As always, our Christmas concert will be a moving occasion, as people remember those lost to this devastating disease."
“You don’t need to have an experience of meningitis or be a previous supporter of Meningitis Now to come along. Everybody is welcome to join us and enjoy a wonderful evening of music in the beautiful setting of Gloucester Cathedral."
“It’s the perfect way to get into the mood for the festive season.”
Christmas tree with ribbons
A large Christmas tree adorned with white ribbons in remembrance of loved ones lost to meningitis will also be on display in the cathedral.
Proceeds from the concert are used to support our lifesaving and life-changing services – funding preventative research, raising awareness and supporting those affected.
Leah added, “At Meningitis Now we rely on our supporters to help us carry on our vital work, at Christmas-time and throughout the year."
“By joining us for our Gloucester concert you will be making a real difference to those at risk of meningitis and those whose lives have already been changed forever because of it.”
