Tickets are available for £14 or £5 for students and free for children under 12.

Ahead of this, NTU’s popular Christmas Concert returns on Wednesday 6 December with the University’s 170 strong choir and 50-piece orchestra performing a selection of Christmas favourites for everyone to enjoy.

A full orchestra performance of selections from Polar Express and a unique version of Jingle Bells from the Chamber Choir will be sure to get you in the Christmas mood.

The festive celebration will take place in NTU’s Newton building from 7.30 pm with tickets available for £10 or £5 for students.

A free lunchtime concert at the Royal Concert Hall on Monday 4 December offers a welcome break from Christmas shopping. Hear a selection of music from the NTU Chamber Choir and Brass Band from 1pm – 2 pm.

A traditional carol service held in All Saints’ Church, on Raleigh Street, marks the start of NTU’s Christmas celebrations with carols performed by the NTU choirs.

Arranged by NTU’s Chaplaincy Service, the evening begins at 7pm on Friday 1 December and will be followed with seasonal refreshments.

Matthew Hopkins, Director of Music at Nottingham Trent University, said: “Each event has a different feel but they all showcase and celebrate the wonderful talent we have here at the University.

“Our new Family Christmas Concert is a great opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of fantastic Christmas music and an opportunity to sing some carols alongside a professional orchestra in the Albert Hall.”
