In light of the festive season University Campus Barnsley’s Popular Music and Music Production and Sound Recording students held their Christmas concert, ‘Christmas Shingles’, at the Electric Theatre for family, friends and members of the public.

The free performance was staged as part of their Music courses and doubled up as great industry experience.

Performances included a selection of rock and blues pieces along with bands playing their own versions of traditional Christmas songs.

Music, Media and Performance Senior Assessor at UCB, Thomas Flanagan, supervised the direction of the show along with Barnsley College theatre apprentices. He said: “Having heard the students in rehearsal I knew they were good, but seeing them on stage and witnessing their level of performance absolutely blew me away.”
