Dec 22 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Let’s go and sing some Carols at the Band Stand. Bring a flask, a woolly hat and a blanket and list to the town’s brass band. Santa usually puts in an appearance, armed with a sackful of goodies to reward the ad-hoc children’s choir and the Band enter into the spirit by dressing up as Dickensian characters.

Admission is free and song sheets will be provided. Chairs, however are always in short supply, so bring one if you are able.

Meet at the rear of Marks & Spencer to walk down to Priory Park.

EVERYONE WELCOME
