Guests came from Abbeyfield, Avon Court, Tauntfield, Staplegrove Day Centre, the Bernard Taylor homes, St. George's and Beech Court.
The Junior School's Senior Choir were in fine voice with their programme of songs and carols, followed by Senior School students, who performed a varied repertoire of instrumental and vocal pieces.
Rotary Presdent Tony Cox, said, 'We have been coming here for many years and it's always a wonderful occassion and my very favourite event of the year.'
'Watching the children sing and perform really lifts the heart and the pupils and staff always make us feel at home.' Visit the Queen's College Twitter page and sample for yourself this special event.
