The Southsea Alternative Choir will be at the Little Johnny Russells and the RMA Tavern (the Gun Room) singing “alternative” Christmas carols in order to raise some cash for SamuelsFund. There’ll be singing, dancing, drinking, mince pies, tinsel, snow (well, you never know!), pretty much everything you’d associate with a good old fun-filled Christmas knees up. There’s only one difference that sets it apart from a traditional Christmas carol concert, they won’t be singing any Christmas carols. Instead, they’ll be playing a selection of feel-good anthems ranging from timeless bands such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys, right up to modern indie classics from the likes of Blur, Elbow & More. Cracking stuff.
Everyone’s welcome and they don’t even care if you can’t sing, just as long as you want to have fun, like good music and can afford to chuck a few quid in a bucket to help someone who needs it this Christmas. The more the merrier! You can catch them at LJRs this Tuesday and entry is free, or you can get a bit more intimate at the RMA where tickets are £5 from a member of the choir.
