It’s Virtually Christmas!

Below are a couple of links to videos on YouTube which are guaranteed to get you in a festive mood for Christmas.

First of all, we’re inviting you to join us at 7pm on Monday 20 December to watch a re-run of our three Christmas videos we produced last year. Called ‘It’s Virtually Christmas’, the 10 minute-long ‘show’ provides a great start to the last week before Christmas and if you join us at 7pm, you will watch the videos at exactly the same time as lots of others.

The Christmas videos have spruced up soundtracks to make them sound even better and if you listen to hem on ear/headphones, you’ll get the full experience in glorious stereo! 

You can watch our videos in a variety of ways, including:

– by clicking or tapping the links on whatever device you can see them – your phone, tablet or computer, for example. This will take you to the videos on YouTube in one step and start playing them automatically

– watching them on a smart TV, which provides access to YouTube. From the YouTube home page, search for ECMVC or Eastwood Collieries’ Male Voice Choir and you will be presented with loads of links to all our videos, including the Christmas ones

– watch the videos on ANY device that gives you access to YouTube and search for us, as above.

Once the video has finished, it will be available for you to watch whenever you like, on demand.

Clicking or tapping the link below will take you to YouTube, where you can subscribe to our channel if you wish and set yourself a reminder to settle down to sing along to three favourite seasonal songs. A few minutes before 7pm, you will see a countdown screen so you can make sure you’re ready for the start!

Please tell your friends and we hope to see you in the audience!

Secondly, as a perfect introduction and warm-up to our revisited Christmas videos this week, here’s ECMVC’s resident Master of Mirth and Mischief with last year’s reflection on the lockdowns of 2020. Hamish (aka Jim Elliott) provides us with a great monologue which revives memories, both good and poignant, of how we grappled with the early days of the pandemic as a choir and members of the public. 

All of us at ECMVC wish you a very happy and safe Christmas!
