A Busy Christmas

Royal Star Arcade Kettle Bridge Concertinas were much in demand in the lead-up to Christmas. We played at several care homes, at the Whitstable Christmas Fayre and had two Tuesday lunchtime sessions in Maidstone’s Royal Star Arcade.

Thankfully, we have a well-established (and well-practiced!) repertoire of Christmas music that includes carols and other popular festive tunes. Click here to see all the latest reports of what we have been up to in December.

We all hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2020 proves to be a year full of health and happiness!
