Lincombe Manor Retirement Village kicked off Christmas celebrations in swinging style on December 10th with the help of members of one of the finest swing outfits in the region – the Drat Pack.

Drat PackCarols by Candlelight was the name of the event and ‘swing’ was the style. The grand hall of the manor house at Lincombe Manor was given a touch of Christmas spirit with holly, ribbons, Christmas trees and of course candles.

This event was the first Carols by Candlelight at Lincombe Manor with the magnificent building providing the perfect backdrop for seasonal celebrations. The audience was treated to a full programme of Christmas classics in glorious swing style and the opportunity to sing carols together.

The Drat Pack trio was led by Adam Moran, he commented during the evening: “It’s a treat to have such a wonderfully tuneful audience.” Adam was joined by Neil Maya on saxes and Tom Unwin on the piano.

A member of the audience, who also lives at the Manor, said: “What a wonderful way to start our Christmas celebrations. Mulled wine, mince pies, great company and superb entertainment… simply wonderful. It really has been a lovely evening.”
