More than 300 guests packed Portsmouth Cathedral for a carol concert hosted by south coast law firm Blake Lapthorn.

Blake Lapthorn held an evening drinks reception at the Cathedral and Christmas carols were performed by the firm’s choir, made up of a variety of staff members and a selection of the firm’s lawyers.

They included partners Amanda Morris (property litigation) Kath Shimmin (banking and finance), and Mary Chant (corporate and commercial).

Jacquie Harry, an associate from the firm's private lient team, was the accompanist for the evening and the musical director was Nicolas Woods.

The choir performed a range of music including traditional Christmas carols such as The Holly and The Ivy, Good King Wenceslas and The First Noël.

More than 300 guests including the firm’s clients and a selection of family and friends attended the event last night (Thursday December 19).  

Rachel Brooks said: “We are delighted to have run the carol concert again for Christmas. The events are always well attended and we are pleased to have had another excellent attendance this year. The firm's choir rehearsed extremely hard and we hope that the guests enjoyed the Christmas music.”A group of singing lawyers will find themselves on trial when they perform for judges at Southampton’s music festival.
