The Seaview choir provides the carol concert finale.

Seaview choir caps successful concert

Seaview’s hugely enjoyable carol concert in St John the Evangelist Church last Saturday was supported by Sound Waves Community Choir and a cappella group, Now and Then and ended with a performance by Seaview’s own choir. The event proved a successful fundraiser, bringing in donations of £774 from a record crowd, estimated at 200 plus. The tally for the Big Sleep in September is still under way, but has so far reached more than £25,000. As public funding dwindles, Seaview is increasingly reliant on its own resources to raise the vital funds for its invaluable work with homeless, vulnerable and distressed people. Nick Terdre writes.

‘Not 1066 and all that’ – a different approach to conventional history

In conventional history-making what seems to unite different historians is a particular subject matter, such as a period in history. The ‘Not 1066 and All That’ event on Saturday 8 October is not quite like that. Instead our emphasis is on how we have made history and ways of sharing this so that others can pursue their own interests, writes Hilda Kean, one of the organisers of this event.
