Festive entertainment for Wightlink commuters


Wightlink passengers can enjoy a programme of seasonal musical entertainment this December, thanks to the goodwill of local musical groups keen to showcase their talent.

School children from Wootton Primary School and St Catherine’s in Ventnor will be onboard St Clare to perform seasonal tunes, along with singers from OSEL, Ryde Chorus, Wight Harmony and the Fusion Arts Choir, an adult pop and musical theatre group based in Ryde.

Newport Jazz Club will be taking some foot-tapping fun to the ferry, while the Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra’s string quartet will share some smooth classics with travellers.

On the Lymington to Yarmouth route, the A4 Brass Ensemble will perform Christmas favourites on their way to perform in Freshwater on December 7 as part of West Wight Arts Association’s season of concerts, which Wightlink supports.

Dover Park Primary School’s Year 3 choir will be at the end of Ryde Pier to entertain FastCat customers with their Christmas repertoire.
