I wish I could see it, I think male voice choirs are brilliant, and it's supporting three great causes.

It's the thing I look forward to most at Christmas. And I'm not a big fan of male voice choirs. The docks choir is amazing.

By the way, everyone I know calls them the 'docks choir' because that's what they were originally.
