The annual carol festival hosted by Wick St Fergus Church is firmly established as a seasonal favourite and that was again underlined by this years performance. A warm welcome was extended to Wick Choral Society and especially so, to the Caithness Orchestra who were unable to be present last year because of snowstorm conditions. No weather hiccups this year though and both orchestra and choral gave their audience of some 280 an enjoyable festive programme, performing jointly and separately. Musicians and choral were in fine form for the Christmas curtain raising recital, Don Renwick combining his roles as compere and conductor in his customary humorous style skipping between the orchestral and choral podiums with his tinsel decorated baton. The audience was given the opportunity to join in some of the carols and other traditional pieces and made the most of it no more so than with the reminder if any was needed that Santa Claus is coming to town.
