Christmas Carols 2022 - Sunday 11th December

The winter nights are starting to draw in which inevitably means that the Christmas season is well and truly on it’s way! 

We are thrilled that our carol evening will be back again this year on Sunday 11th December at St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Godalming.  Starting at 5pm, it is a wonderful combination of readings, carols and songs and we have a host of celebrity friends performing for us. 

Jenny Seagrove will be joined by the wonderful actor and comedienne Sally Phillips (Tilly in 'Miranda', Shazza in 'Bridget Jones Diary' and 'Smack the Pony') as well as actor Matthew Cottle ('Game On', 'The Windsors' and 'Chaplin').  But not only that, our wonderful patrons, actor Sara Crowe and singer, Beau Dermott will also be performing alongside our great friends, singer Damien Edwards and the Junior Choir of St Hilary’s School.  What an incredible treat for us all! 

But the stars of the show are always our Shetland Ponies – a few of whom will act as meet and greet outside the church before the event begins, but two will start the event itself by walking up the aisle! 

This evening is always a truly lovely start to the festive season and enjoyable for all the family.  Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for seniors (over 60) and children (aged 5-15) – under 5s go free.

Some tickets will be available to purchase on the door - we are no longer selling them online - so please do come and join us!

We would be very grateful if you could bring cash wherever possible, as the card machine doesn't always work in the church!
