Aylesbury Town Council has declared a public invitation to a festive Christmas carol singing event, free for all to attend.
On Sunday, December 10, residents are welcome to join Carolfest in Aylesbury’s Old Town at St Mary’s Church. The event aims to bring together the Aylesbury community for a joyous celebration of the Christmas season, catering to friends and families of all ages.
Carolfest will showcase a lively program of carols led by choirs from Broughton Junior School and Bucks Music Trust. The event promises additional performances from local singers, encouraging the festive spirit. Attendees are encouraged to don Christmas jumpers, with a prize awarded for the best-dressed. Hot chocolate and gingerbread men will be available for purchase, and all proceeds will support the Aylesbury Mayor’s chosen charities: Youth Concern and Age UK Buckinghamshire.
Aylesbury Mayor, Councillor Steven Lambert, expressed enthusiasm, stating, “We’d love to see residents enjoy a 60-minute singsong in St Mary’s Church. The Town Council hosts free community events year-round, so please join us to wrap up another fantastic year of events in Aylesbury while celebrating the most wonderful time of the year!”
The event is scheduled to take place between 6-7 pm. The town council has previously announced its official light switch-on event in Market Square on Sunday, November 26. Notable attendees for the free Christmas party next weekend include Aylesbury pantomime regular and BBC Three Counties presenter, Andy Collins.
