Celebrating the spirit of giving: School choir entertains at Christmas Concert

The Merchants House held its annual Christmas Concert on Monday 4th December 2023. The event was very popular, with in excess of 100 people turning up on what was a very chilly winter evening in Glasgow.

The Lord Dean, Andrew McFarlane, and Vice Dean, Donald Carmichael, were in attendance and welcomed everyone in to the warmth and comfort of the Grand Hall. The festivities began with mulled wine and mince pies, and a chance for guests to catch up and have a chat.

The choir from St. Denis’ Primary School, Dennistoun, then took centre stage and regaled the audience with a host of songs, from classic carols to festive tunes. They really got into the spirit of the event, with a mini nativity scene and one child even dressing up in a Santa outfit!

All proceeds from the event will help support our charitable work. Thanks to everyone who came and supported us, and to the children and staff of St. Denis’ for providing us with such a joyful evening. We hope you enjoy these photographs from the event.
