Christmas Carols 2019

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

The Christmas Carol Service is to be held on Sunday 8th 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. 

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! 

Jenny Seagrove will be joined by Andrew Lancel (ex-Coronation Street) and our wonderful patrons, actors Sara Crowe and Hilary O’Neil.  Beau Dermott (Britain’s got Talent finalist), Damien Edwards and Isaac Lancel-Watkinson will also be singing, and we have the Junior Choir of St Hilary’s School supporting us too. 

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.
