A special Christmas concert which replaced the annual Houghton Regis school choirs contest this year really struck the right note.
The event, A Celebration of Christmas, at the Grove Theatre, Dunstable, raised £1,750 for Houghton mayor Councillor Peter Williams’ chosen charities.
The idea was that the school choir contest should become a concert with all joining in to celebrate Christmas this year.
The concert, sponsored by Houghton Regis Development Consortium, featured Houghton choirs from Hawthorn Park Primary, Houghton Regis Primary, Thomas Whitehead Primary, Tithe Farm Primary and St Vincent’s Catholic Primary schools.
And the concert also included signing performances from Luton Mencap.
Houghton Regis Town Council said it would like to thank all who supported the event.
