The night before christmas

Sun 19th Dec 21 14:00 edit

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through Hoddinott Hall,
the BBC National Orchestra of Wales were having a ball,
Joined by conductor Grant Llewellyn and presenter Elin Llwyd,
The story of Christmas Eve is about to be told…

Join us for an afternoon of music and festive cheer,
As Christmas celebrations are drawing ever near.
Hear jingles, stories and tunes to warm your heart,
And stand by, as you may even get to take part.

It’s English at two, and Welsh at four,
And come on guys, you know the score…
Festive accessories and jumpers all round,
And prepare to be amazed by the magical orchestral sound.
