Christmas Concert 2014 with HRH Princess Beatrice

Our Christmas concert on 9th December 2014 was held at Central Methodist Church and was attended by our royal patron, HRH Princess Beatrice.

Richard Shephard conducted, David Pipe played the organ, and YMS members sang a mixed set of new and familiar carols, with audience participation from all sides in the wonderful setting of Central Methodist Church.

Princess Beatrice was accompanied by Barry Dodd, Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire. At a reception before the concert, she met Sir Donald and Lady Barron, and members of the YMS committee.

After the concert (which included a brand new carol by Richard Shephard), singers and audience  had coffee and mince pies in the church hall. As well as being a special treat for us to entertain Princess Beatrice, the event marked the close of a busy and successful 2014 for YMS.
