Christmas at the Royal Albert Hall

Last weekend, we had friends to stay and we treated them to the Christmas Sing-a-long at the Royal Albert Hall.  It’s a lot of fun.IMG_5035.JPGOrdinarily, whenever we go to a carol concert or the Panto, we throw on a Christmas jumper and call it done.  I was, therefore, rather alarmed when my friend, she of the Strictly WhatsApp conversations, announced that she had bought matching dresses for herself and her daughter … not being the mother of daughters, I had no idea that was even a thing.IMG_5008 (2).JPGA quick Internet search revealed that there are plenty of Christmas patterned dresses for grown-ups … I plumped for a skater dress that has a plain black bodice and a patterned skirt, and I paired it with a cropped cardigan in red.  My Santa hat was an additional extra.IMG_E5019.JPGMy personal style highlight was when someone stopped to ask where I’d purchased my dress from … if you’re interested, I got it here (and will be wearing it again when we go to the Panto).

And what of the sing-a-long?  It was brilliant!  A successful mix of classical music and sing-out-loud-with-actions.  It’s ideal for all ages and the tickets were very reasonably priced.  Ho ho ho!

  2. What a lovely festive outfit! That was a very lucky find. Next year I really must look into that Albert Hall concert, it sounds like the perfect event to put you in the Christmas spirit.
