Gala Christmas Concert

Saturday, 7 December 2013

Epilepsy Scotland Christmas Concert Edinburgh

Capture the Christmas spirit with an evening of classical and traditional music inspired by the festive season in the stunning surroundings of Greyfriars Kirk.

The evening, held by Epilepsy Scotland, takes place on Saturday 7 December. Performers include the Orchestra and Chorus of the Canongait, four soloists from the world of opera and local children from East Lothian singing Christmas favourites.

Epilepsy Scotland Chief Executive Lesslie Young said; “We started having a Christmas Concert three years ago and it has become more popular year on year.  I am delighted to be back in the beautiful Greyfriars Kirk and to have the support of such talented performers.  The added value this year is the primary school children who will be singing for us.

It is truly a magical evening and the perfect way to start your Christmas celebrations.  All money raised will help to maintain the essential services we provide to those effected by epilepsy in Scotland long after the festive season is over.”

After the performance you are invited to enjoy a glass of fizz and canapés while getting the chance to mingle with the performers.

Performing on the night will be Jennifer McEwan, Janet de Vigne, Ivor Klayman and John Marshall.

Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start, the concert will last approx. 2 hours, with a brief interval. Included in the price of your ticket is a complimentary tea or coffee at the interval as well as refreshments after the concert. 

Tickets cost £20 and are available from our website or by calling 0141 427 4911.
