Katesgrove’s own chanteuse serenades Wokingham

Wokingham Living Advent Calendar

Katesgrove’s own Gillie ‘Te Kanawa’ Tunley will sing to Wokingham at 6.15pm on Friday 2 December as part of Wokingham’s living advent calendar.

During this event, a different venue in Wokingham’s town centre hosts a performance each day from 1 December until 24 December, at 6.15pm on weekdays and 4pm on weekends.

In the spirit of an advent calendar, the nature of each performance is kept a surprise, but Gillian has exclusively revealed to the Whitley Pump that she intends to sing works ranging from John Denver to Tina Turner with a cello accompaniment, and will end on a singalong Christmas theme.

Money raised from the events go towards local charities Building for the Future, Dingley’s Promise and Soulscape.

The locations and times of each daily event, which lasts about 15 minutes, can be found on the website. Gillian’s event takes place at Martin & Co on Peach Street.
