On Saturday 8 December 2018, Blocks sponsored the Royal Hospital School Christmas concert – The First Nowell. The first half of the programme was Benjamin Britten’s Saint Nicolas OP42. The second half was traditional Christmas arrangements and carols. The conductor was William Saunders and the tenor, Richard Edgar-Wilson. The Holbrook Choral Society, RHS Chapel Choir, RHS Chamber Choir and the Reade Orchestra and Brass Ensemble performed.
The event was very well attended and received. The Chapel which holds approximately 1000 people seemed full. Blocks held a small reception with prosecco and mince pies before the event and at the interval. It formed a great start to the Christmas season putting everyone in the mood.
