Does this mean there is no Carol concert after the 10th of december? Or is there a page 2 I can't seem to have access to?


Have you ever heard Christmas carols performed by a top steel drum band ensemble? http://www.steelbandhire.com/ This band was hired by Hamleys to entertain guests as they entered the famous London toy store and is available for Christmas parties. The space required is minimal if you book the 3 piece acoustic band and the enchanting sound is simply inspiring.
