About our Christmas concerts

We love this time of year, but it can be pretty hectic for us parents, right?! So to make life a bit easier, here are some top tips about our Christmas concerts.

  1. All are welcome - families members big and small, those who celebrate Christmas and those that dont.
  2. Our Christmas concerts will be a feast of music that celebrates families coming together and all things wintertime, with a sprinkling of sleigh bells and singalong carols throughout - there'll be something for everybody!
  3. Look out for the specific music and musical instruments at your chosen concert when the programmes are announced in early November.
  4. Fancy dress, frolicking and loud singing encouraged, but please note this is not a carol service, or santa's grotto and we can't guarantee the church will have a tree up yet. **sniff**

About the venue

Bach to Baby Wanstead Venue ImageWanstead URC has a most unique history. Built in the parish of St. Pancras and consecrated in 1861, the church had to be moved due to the great railway expansions. It was dismantled, transported, and rebuilt on the current site in 1867! Situated just off the Wanstead High Street, the church welcomes familes of Wanstead, Snaresbrook, Redbridge and surrounding areas to the plethora of activities central to a vibrant community's needs. Step out after a Bach to Baby concert, you will be in the centre of Wanstead Village - perfect for a stroll down or a relaxing lunch along the High Street.
