Thursday 29 November and Friday 30 November at 8pm
Friends and visitors are warmly welcomed to The Memorial Chapel, Charterhouse, Godalming for an enchanting evening of candle-lit carols sung by the School’s Chamber Choir.
This festive occasion is an atmospheric performance of carols including Vaughan Williams’s This is the Truth along with Ding Dong merrily on High and The Holly and the Ivy, as well as some lesser known carols. The music is interspersed with characterful readings to celebrate Advent and Christmas.
The event, which lasts about an hour, will be conducted Mark Shepherd. Choral singing is outstanding at Charterhouse. Come and hear for yourself!
Admission is free with a collection for the charities, Amnesty International and Godalming Old People Welfare Association.
Candle-lit Carols is not ticketed so there is no need to book in advance.
