A HIGHBRIDGE school will be holding the first Christmas concert of the 2020’s - 11 months early.

Creative arts students at The King Alfred School Academy will wow audiences with their acting, dancing, Christmas music and festive work at the concert on Monday, January 27 with mince pies and mulled wine to finish.

The school's festive concert was initially scheduled to take place in December last year but it was cancelled after a number of students fell ill with flu virus.

Head of Creative Arts at The King Alfred School Laura Whiteoak said: “We are so excited to be hosting the first Christmas concert of the decade.

"We are incredibly proud of the pieces our students have produced and know our audience would want the opportunity to enjoy the high standard of their work by fending of the January blues by fully embracing the Christmas spirit with us.

“In a new addition to this year's concert, our art and photography students will be available with a specially made backdrop for students and families to have a photo taken for a 2020 family Christmas card.

"With only 329 shopping days left until Christmas 2020 I am sure many families will want to take advantage of this opportunity.

"Audience members are encouraged to bring their festive spirit and the school will have a special prize available for the most festive attire, so dig through Christmas jumpers out and don your antlers to be in with a chance of winning."
