Stay ‘In From the Cold’

Posted on December 7, 2020 in YES Stories

This post comes to you in collaboration with local writer, Holly Bennett.

Picture this. A snowy December evening. A family gathers round the radio in the living room, listening to their favourite Christmas show. The tree lights twinkle, the kids drink hot chocolate, the adults maybe hot something else.

1940s or 50s? Nope. It’s 2020, and since you can’t go to the theatre, Peterborough’s much-loved ‘In From the Cold’ Christmas concert is coming to you, via our friends at Trent Radio 92.7 FM. And you don’t even need a radio! Listen on your computer, or phone, or whatever! Zoom with your peeps at the same time!

Mark it in your calendar: Dec. 11 and 12, 7 pm you can listen on Trent Radio (92.7 FM) or via the Trent Radio website.
