This week, Christmas really gets underway with four opportunities to sing and hear carols in the village. The Audlem churches are again organising a service of lessons and carols tomorrow, Sunday evening 17th December, beginning at 6.30 pm in St James. Traditional readings will be heard and carols sung. All are welcome — come in good time to get a seat!
(The website link that was here no longer works) Next week, in a slightly more informal setting, there will be a carol concert at Audlem Methodist Church. This will feature music by an augmented Church Choir, accompanied by Jenny Collis-Smith and under the direction of Ann Marshall. Additional festive music will be provided by local music trio: Carl Brunsdon, John Gunstone and Val Warner. The concert is performed twice, on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 December at 7.30 pm. Admission is by programme — check if any programmmes are still available from a number of the village shops, or from Norman Mitchell, or from other members of the Choir. The programmes are free, but at each concert there will be a collection for NCH.
(The website link that was here no longer works) And on Friday evening there is one of the most popular events in the Audlem calendar, the carol singing in the The Square around the Christmas tree. There are always hundreds there, as you can see from the photograph of last year's gathering — if you click on the photo, it will enlarge it. This year the Worshipful The Mayor, Councillor Howard Curran; The Mayoress, Mrs Sheila Curran; The Deputy Mayor, Councillor Maurice Jones and the Deputy Mayoress, Mrs Ann Jones will all be attending. The carol singing starts at 7.30pm.
And there's an opportunity to socialise after the carol singing in the Scout & Guide Hall with mince pies and mulled wine served.
