Chester Cathedral

A truly magical evening that awaits you at Chester Cathedral on Friday 23rd November, ensuring the festive season starts with a sparkle for the great and good of Cheshire. Matthew Kelly invites you to The Neuromuscular Centre's Spirit of Christmas, the annual concert of festive readings and music.

With several stars of stage, television and film, our 23rd Spirit of Christmas promises to be a glitzy and glamorous affair, complete with plenty of Champagne to follow.

Past readers have included stars such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Imelda Staunton, Jim Carter, Sir Derek Jacobi and Jemma Redgrave to name a few. We will post details of the line up as and when we have further information for you.

We are also delighted to welcome back the wonderful Robert's Bakery Band to get Christmas off to a cracking start. During the run up to the event we also launch a county-wide Choir Competition for Primary School children between the ages of 7 and 11, kindly sponsored by Dawsons Music in association with Chester's Dee Radio 106.3. The winning choir will have the opportunity to perform at Spirit of Christmas 2017 in front of an audience of 1000+ and will also receive a digital piano for their school.
