Islanders and mainlanders crossing the Solent with Wightlink this Christmas are being serenaded by musicians from the Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra’s string quartet, Newport Jazz Club and The Way Forward Singers.
The groups will be playing seasonal tunes and other music onboard Wightlink’s flagship St Clare on selected sailings between Fishbourne and Portsmouth to get customers in the festive mood.
Both the Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Club are sponsored by the ferry company and The Way Forward Singers are part of Osel Enterprises, which supplies Wightlink’s shops with Wight Crystal water.
Daryl Palmer, Operations Director for Wightlink says:
“We always like to provide entertainment for our customers throughout the year and especially at Christmas and during Island events.
“We are busy making plans for even more onboard performances in 2018.”
