Christmas Family Pops, King's Lynn
ALISON CROOSE What better way to welcome Christmas than with a real family show when everyone could sing all their favourite seasonal tunes with great gusto.
What better way to welcome Christmas than with a real family show when everyone could sing all their favourite seasonal tunes with great gusto.
But this was no ordinary singalong for it was headed by Ian McMillan who, with the London Pops Orchestra, weaved a lot of Christmas magic to the delight of both young and old in the audience at the Corn Exchange.
The leading musical director who has worked on top West End and television shows, became a kilted Uncle Mac for the evening, demonstrating a talent for “working” an audience.
His enthusiasm was infectious and he quickly persuaded everyone to join in singing a host of well-loved songs, and also cajoled them into doing accompanying actions and aerobics!
That alone was great festive fun, but there was also a splendid orchestra to enjoy plus four accomplished singers. They deserved better than to accompany an audience singing with more exhilaration than talent but they gladly entered into the spirit of the occasion.
