A packed Holy Sepulchre Church in Ashington saw the festive season launched with a special Christmas concert performed by the Ashington and District Male Voice Choir.
The annual event has been part of the town’s heritage for many years but audiences seem to grow each time.
The vocal group performed a number of well known festive songs as well as many of their favourite pieces, and the programme was augmented with the return appearance of Anna Corcoran who joined the men and gave some solo performances.
The audience thoroughly enjoyed the concert as well as the excellent Christmas buffet provided by the ladies from Holy Sepulchre.
The choir will resume its rehearsals in January for its next concert.
