The perfect start to the festive season!

Come along and join us at our Spirit of Christmas concert, “A Night of Hope” on Thursday 5 December 2019 for an evening of festive song and celebration.

We’re excited to be able to welcome you to the beautiful and iconic venue of Parliament Buildings at the Northern Ireland Assembly to usher in the Christmas season; and support families across Northern Ireland who are living with muscle-wasting conditions.

The evening will be hosted by BBC Radio Ulster DJ Stephen Clements and feature a programme of festive readings and music, including renowned performers soprano Mairead Healy, tenor David Curry and the Lisburn Harmony Ladies Choir. It is sure to be the perfect start to this wonderful time of year.

Doors will open at 6.30pm with the delightful performances set to start promptly at 7pm.

The evening is kindly sponsored by Mark H Durkan MLA.

By joining us, you’ll be helping to fund pioneering research into treatments and cures for muscle-wasting conditions – to improve lives today and transform those for future generations.

With your support, we can be here for everyone living with muscle-wasting conditions today, tomorrow and beyond. Make this Christmas season count.
