On Tuesday 22 December from 6pm, Naomi House & Jacksplace is sharing some extra festive cheer with its local community of supporters by hosting ‘An Evening of Christmas Spirit’.
The virtual event will include a very special appearance from supporter and friend of the charity, Lord Julian Fellowes, who will perform a reading of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’ exclusively for the event. The rest of the event will be made up of live and pre-recorded performances from talented local musicians, singers and Naomi House supporters, including classical pop trio, Blake, Winchester College choir and more.
Lucy Gray, Regional Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace, said:
We want to share the power of music and storytelling with our friends in the community and felt a virtual Christmas concert was the best way to do this. At a time when it’s difficult to have visitors at the hospices, we wanted to bring a part of the hospices to our supporters in their homes, which is why we are delighted to host the live event from the hospices.
We’re so pleased to have the involvement of Lord Julian Fellowes and Blake to add that extra sparkle to our event line-up. Singing along is encouraged, as there will be plenty of familiar melodies to join in with, or supporters can sit back, relax and enjoy the event from the comfort of their own homes. After a challenging year for everyone, we hope to spread some festive cheer for everyone this Christmas.
Tickets are £5 per person, which includes access to the online virtual event on Zoom. To find out more/purchase a ticket, visit:
Music is an essential and joyful part of life at Naomi House & Jacksplace. Music can be so beneficial for the children and young adults visiting the hospices, as it can aid relaxation and is a fantastic method of expression and communication. A range of interesting sounds and the vibrations of drums and guitar strings stimulates the senses, and telling stories through music, producing the sound of rain against the window or the sea crashing into the shore, will give each child or young adult a fully immersive sensory experience.
