YOUNGSTERS from Henley Children?s Theatre sang to a crowd of more than 60 people on the ninth day of the Henley Living Advent Calendar last night (Wednesday).

The children, aged four to 13, dressed in Father Christmas hats and reindeer antlers to perform a collection of songs which included festive classics Let it Snow, White Christmas and Santa Clause is Coming to Town.

The performance was held in the rear garden of estate agents Simmons & Sons, off Bell Street, and was in aid of the Chiltern Centre for disabled children.

The children were led through the evening by Muffin Hurst, who runs the group, and the show featured a solo performance by Annabelle Hoogenberg.

Ms Hurst said: ?I think they did very well. It?s tricky because we?re very busy rehearsing for our pantomime and we?re trying to do these songs as well, so they have done very well to learn them all.

?The children get very excited because they love performing. I feel proud of them.?

Paul Barrett, chairman of the Chiltern Centre trustees, said: ?Henley is very lucky to have the Living Advent Calendar. What is so wonderful is the support that Henley gives to it. God bless the people who turn out to support this initiative. It?s a lovely way of approaching Christmas.?

Knox & Eames provided mince pies and mulled wine on the night.
