Hospice Annual Christmas Concert in Bangor Cathedral is set to return bringing festive cheer to all.

On Friday 3rd December, music and song will be raising the roof of Bangor Cathedral in aid of St David’s Hospice. The evening’s performances will feature Hospice Patron Elin Fflur, Rhys Meirion and Cor Y Penrhyn.

Hosted by Dilwyn Morgan, the night will be a festive night of entertainment which is guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit.

Côr Y Penrhyn, the Male Voice Choir from Bethesda, famous for their accomplished performances of old favourites and contemporary pieces, are extremely proud to be amongst the first musical ensembles to perform in public, since the relaxation of the rules concerning the coronavirus.

The Choir’s Musical Director, Owain Arwel Davies, said:
“The members have been looking forward to this first performance since lockdown and all of us are eager to assist St David’s in raising funds, which go to support the vital work done at the Hospice.”

The choir’s chairman, Haydn Davies, was equally enthusiastic and commented that “the choir remembers the thrill and excitement felt when we last performed in the cathedral in aid of the Hospice, with Rhys Meirion and Elin Fflur.”

Elin Fflur

Soloist and Hospice patron Elin Fflur wowed the audience at the last concert in 2019 and looks forward to this year:

“Christmas is my favourite time of the year and since I’ve been working with the Hospice, the Christmas concert has become one of the highlights. Set in the beautiful Cathedral, it really is a special evening that’s certain to get us all in the mood for the festivities while at the same time raising essential funds for the charity.”

Rhys Meirion

Classical tenor Rhys Meirion has enjoyed international success in opera, and concert highlights include a gala concert at the Royal Albert Hall with Bryn Terfel and his BBC Prom debut at the opening night of the BBC Proms.

Rhys said:
“When people are at their darkest hour, St David’s Hospice provide a ray of light which gives comfort and guidance in life’s most difficult of journeys. It is a privilege to sing at their annual fundraising concert, and a pleasure to share the stage with friends once again.”

This year’s event has been kindly sponsored by Dafydd Hardy Estate Agents.
Director and Hospice Trustee Dafydd Hardy said:

“As a Trustee of St David’s Hospice, it’s already a charity close to my heart. The work they do is so important that we as a company wanted to support their Christmas event at Bangor Cathedral. The last 18 months have been difficult for us all, with many having lost loved ones, including myself, not only to COVID but long-term illnesses too.

Dafydd Hardy

“The charity delivers high-quality palliative care to patients with life-limiting illnesses and support for their families. We look forward to supporting, sponsoring, and attending this event which will hopefully raise not only funds for the charity but awareness too.”

The Cathedral will be beautifully lit and filled with sounds of Christmas a perfect way for the family to start the Christmas season. All money raised from this concert will allow St David’s Hospice to continue to provide free care and support to patients living with life-limiting illnesses in Northwest Wales, together with their families and carers.

The concert will start at 7.30pm on the night, with doors opening at 7pm. Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children (under 16). To avoid disappointment book early, tickets can be purchased online by visiting: https://register.enthuse.com/ps/event/BangorCathedralChristmasConcert.
