Celebrate a family Christmas with Chester Music Society Choir, Chester Philharmonic Orchestra and our guest presenter, Liverpool's own Roger McGough.
Roger McGough, ‘a trickster you can trust’, is one of Britain’s best-loved poets for both adults & children.
Much travelled and translated, his poetry has gained increasing popularity, especially from its widespread use in schools. A prolific writer, he is twice winner of the Signal Award for best children’s poetry book and recipient of the Cholmondeley Award.
'The patron saint of poetry' Carol Ann Duffy
He is a true original and more than one generation would be much the poorer without him’ The Times
' Liverpool 's own Poet Laureate' Daily Post
Roger currently hosts Poetry Please on BBC Radio 4.

In addition to many of the old favourite carols the programme will include Walking in the Air (The Snowman) and a performance of Evening Prayer from Humperdinck's opera Hansel and Gretel.
