Robin St Clair Jones, Chair of The Ashdown Forest Foundation, said: "Following last year's sell-out performance of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons', we are delighted to welcome back Icon Strings, accompanied this year by the acclaimed actor Samuel Collings. I am confident that the combination of The Snowman, a selection of joyful Christmas tunes and the beautiful location offered by Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club is guaranteed to put the audience in the Christmas spirit.
