Living Advent Day 22: Square swings to sisters

FALAISE Square hosted a Thirties-style singing set from a vocal trio

FALAISE Square hosted a Thirties-style singing set from a vocal trio.

Some Swell Sisters performed under the shelter of a gazebo to protect them from the rain during their performance last night, in front of the Christmas tree in Henley town centre.

They performedsongs such as Sing Sing Sing by Benny Goodman and finished their set with with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy by The Andrews Sisters.

The evening was raising money for Fish Volunteer Centre in Sonning Common.

Richard Rodway, chairman of the Living Advent Calendar, said: ?It?s testimony to the spirit and generosity of the people of Henley who turn out night after night to support the event that, despite the weather, tonight was one of our most successful nights this year in terms of how much we raised.

?Having the Sisters perform under a gazebo in these sorts of conditions was not quite what any of us had in mind when we visualised the night several months ago, but it was such a fun and excellent performance and a big thanks to them for persevering with the conditions?

The penultimate night of the calendar will again be in Falaise Square but this time will be raising money for Henley's Community First Responders.

The Chocolate Theatre Café will be partnering the event.
