Hosting a Christmas concert for the first time since 2019, Hope in Haringey looked to bring local schools, community programmes and police engagement partners together for an afternoon of festive celebration.

Returning to Lillywhite House’s London Academy of Excellence Tottenham, Hope in Haringey once again put out an invitation to unite schools and communities from across Haringey in a celebration of local talent and festive cheer.

As an opportunity for locals to delight in the musical talents of the borough’s youth, guests were enchanted by a number of showstoppers including; Seven Sister’s Steel Pan accompaniment, Haringey Music Service Orchestra, Lancasterian’s Samba Drums and Choir and the Willow’s Dance group.

Long-time friends of Hope in Haringey, singer Charity Quin and London City Missioner, Terry Puttick delighted audiences with their legendary styles.

Hope in Haringey’s police engagement partners were also in attendance. PC Ahmed who recently held a Consent and Law workshop for us led his colleagues from across the Met in singing carols.

Whilst the musical talents on display featured a mixture of modern and classical styles, the carols themselves were of a catalogue of time-honoured traditions including ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’.

As a faith-based but not faith-biased organisation, Hope in Haringey would like to thank every member of Haringey’s multi-faith community for celebrating with us.
