Leigh Haggerwood, founder of the Florin Street Band in his words: a unique Victorian-themed Christmas music project that I created to try to bring back some magic with original, heart-warming Christmas songs. I’ve been amazed at the response to My Favourite Time of Year so far, having received thousands of messages from people all over the world. This has inspired me to keep going and to create an entire Florin Street musical! Since the initial release in 2010, this project has raised money for children’s charities, become the theme to ITV’s Text Santa Christmas appeal, and has been performed by thousands of schools, choirs and orchestras, including the US Army Band. As you’ll discover here, this is an independent production which is still finding its way in the world with no financial backing, and so relies completely on word of mouth. Please join us on Facebook and help spread the word by sharing the videos this Christmas, and if you’d be kind enough to buy a copy, you’ll really help us to keep going. Thank you and have a wonderful festive season!
