Mr Steuart Kellington, who conducts Ribble Valley Choir and orchestra said: “I look forward every year to conducting the choir again as we prepare for the Joy to the World concert. It has evolved over the last 13 years and is a popular town event, probably because of the variety of items we include.

“Traditional carols with audience participation are included as in a conventional carol service but we also enjoy amusing, but relevant, drama items and recall anniversaries and recent events. For me, the concert heralds the start of Christmas!”
