This will be at St Clements Church, High Street, Hastings Old Town, on Saturday, December 12 and Sunday, December 13, at 7.30pm.

With stirring harmonies from the Caspian Sea to the lands of the ancient Celts, pieces have been chosen by the choir’s director Juliet Russell, which evoke a feeling of ancient Christmas. The 40-strong choir will be accompanied by violin, guitars, pipes and percussion, with special guests including well-known folk musicians Garry and Edd Blakeley. Vocal Explosion is an open community choir, which performs a wide range of world music, much of it written by Juliet, who is a composer and singer in her own right.

Tickets £10 for adults and £5 for children under 13, including a glass of wine or soft drink, online at or from B&T Music, 9 Claremont; Made in Hastings, 82 High Street; and SHOP, 32-34 Norman Road, St Leonards.
