Thank you to all who came to our Christmas concerts on Saturday Dec 1st in St James. Although a slightly
earlier date than in previous years, we nevertheless shared a joyous reminder of the miracle of Christmas, and hope that
you all have a happy and peaceful holiday.
Members of Festiva spent a wonderful day
in Sark on Saturday on Saturday June 2nd. The visit culminated with a concert in the Methodist chapel before catching
the boat home, tired and happy!
entered the Eisteddfod class for "Choirs - Church ,Chapel, Religious, Community" on Sunday March 4th at St
James. We narrowly beat Alderney Voices choir by one mark, to win the Guille Alles trophy for the 21st time!!
