Handel's Messiah returns to the Colston Hall this Christmas - almost 120 years to the day since the first Choral Society Messiah at the Hall began an almost unbroken Bristol Christmas tradition.

But don't be fooled - this Messiah may be old, but it's far from old-fashioned: with the immediacy of a performance sung entirely from memory by soloists and choir alike, the exquisite and scintillating playing of the period orchestra Music for Awhile and inspired direction of conductor Adrian Partington, this one is special - causing audience members to leave comments such as 'stunning, simply stunning'.

With a distinguished line-up of soloists and 120 years' know-how, Messiah 2012 bids 'Hallelujah'!

Your Christmas starts here....
