VIDEO: Bute choir in fine voice at Christmas concert

Anyone still struggling to get to grips with the festive spirit on Bute would have felt their festive frowns fade away this week thanks to the Ballianlay Choir’s annual Christmas concert.

The mixed programme of sacred and secular, seasonal, ensemble and solo items included something for everyone to enjoy - and, through entry prices and raffle ticket sales, raised a fantastic £1,900 for the Rothesay Joint Campus social inclusion fund.
