Christmas with The Salvation Army 2018 report


On Sunday 9th December we moved to Symphony Hall in Birmingham and presented The Christmas Message to over 1,500 people.

All sections of The Citadel took part, that list included The Band, Songsters, Junior Band, Singing Company, Primary, African Choir, Timbrels and Dance Group.

We were joined by Choirs formed by school from the Dudley and Sandwell education areas who brought an extra dimension to the day.

Our Special Guest for the day was Abigail Johnson from Peterborough Citadel who sang beautifully and the audiences loved her solo contributions.


After the “snow bomb” that hit Birmingham 12 months ago which forced us to cancel the 2017 event it was a big relief for everyone to get back on the Symphony Hall stage and once again celebrate Christmas in Symphony Hall, something the Corps has been doing since 1992.
