Christmas Carols 2023 - Sunday 10th December

We have been overwhelmed with ticket sales for this event and it is now SOLD OUT.

Please note that we will NOT be selling tickets on the door.

We apologise for any disappointment caused. 

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 10th 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 fabulous Felicity Kendal as well as actors Robert Dawes and Max Brown.  But not only that, our amazing patron, singer Margaret Keys is flying over from Ireland to perform for us. And our carols wouldn't be the same without our friends from the Junior Choir of St Hilary’s School.  What an incredible treat for us all! 

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.
