* Cast members of Festive Frolics during the show.
The programme included a selection of favourite carols and seasonal songs, ranging from Hark the Herald Angels Sing to the ever-popular White Christmas.
Musical items were interspersed with Christmas-themed readings by cast members.
The audience, who were served mince pies and wine during the interval, enthusiastically joined in a rousing delivery of The Twelve Days of Christmas led from the stage.
One of the most moving moments came when a soldier’s account of the legendary Christmas truce on the Western Front in 1914, near the start of the First World War, was read out with English and German versions of the carol Silent Night being sung - just as they were that day by the opposing troops in the trenches.
