Format:  Webinar live stream


We cannot deny that Christmas is going to be altogether very different this year but we are determined to celebrate through music here at Watson's.  Whilst we cannot hold our traditional events held at St Giles' Cathedral, at Polwarth Church or our Assembly Hall,  we hope to bring some Christmas cheer to your home with our online Christmas music event.  Please join us for an evening of live Christmas readings, recordings of some of our past Christmas concerts, a Christmas sing along and a very special festive surprise.
