It’s Christmas and what better than a good ol’ Christmas tune?
We’ve asked around at Cordant People and together with our teams across the UK we have compiled the ultimate Christmas playlist!
We took the contributions from our team and added in some more classics. Some of these songs have some really lovely memories associated with them for our team members and you can read about these below.
