The Maltonian Web Gallery - Christmas 2000-11

From 2002 (I think) the Christmas Carols and Music concert that had been held at St Michael's Church in the market place for many years moved to the school hall, and became more of a Christmas Show: the Head of Music, Stewart Thorp, felt that the church setting restricted the range of music that could be performed, and the sheer effort of transporting chairs and instruments down to the church was taking up a whole morning, plus another to return everything. There were still carols, and lots of music, but comedy and dance routines started to appear as well in the more secular setting of the West Wing Hall. A church carol service was reintroduced (in addition to the school show) by Rob Williams in 2010, held at Old Malton church.
