Please note that all available places for our upcoming Christmas Carol Concert with the Parish Choir of St Wilfrid have now been reserved. Places have been distributed on a first come first served basis. We apologise to anyone who was hoping to attend the event but had not yet booked a place.
There is always a limit to the number of people who can visit St Marie’s at any one time, but given the current situation with the pandemic, we need to be especially careful.
Please do not attend if you have not reserved a place.
Huge thanks to everyone who has booked their place. We look forward to welcoming you to St Marie’s on Tuesday 7th December. The first Carol will be sung at 7pm. The building will be open from 6pm.
What could be more magical than gathering in a warm St Marie’s on a brisk December evening to join family & friends (both old & new) in singing some Christmas carols?
We think it’s the perfect way to start the Christmas season.
The St Marie’s Heritage Group are delighted to welcome back the wonderful Parish Choir of St Wilfrid who will be leading attendees in a Christmas Carol singalong on the night. The choir will be choosing their favourite traditional Carols and we will provide copies of the words for anyone who (like me) always worries about forgetting the next line. The choir will be positioned in front of the beautiful St Marie’s Altar and attendees will sit facing them on the pews and other chairs. We think that when we all sing together, it will all sound magnificent.
There will be mince pies, mulled wine, hot drinks and our usual array of fabulous biscuits. There will be plenty of time to chat and catch up with old friends after the Carols have been sung.
It’s free to attend, but in light of Covid 19, places are limited, so please reserve yours quickly to avoid disappointment.
The event is extremely popular and it is unfair on people who have booked places if they are unable to sit down, so please do book in advance!
