IT’S the annual sight that lets you know Christmas has well and truly arrived.

Fifteen of Winchester Cathedral’s boy choristers took a break from their busy schedule to skate on the city’s ice rink – in full dress.

It has become a tradition for the girls and boys, who will spend much of the festive period performing in cathedral concerts.

They will feature at the Lord Lieutenant’s Carol Concert on Wednesday (Dec 14) at 7pm, hosted by broadcaster and gardener Alan Titchmarsh.
