One of the highlights of a Norfolk Christmas is a rousing carol service and you can’t get better than the EDP Festival of Carols
EDP Festival of Carols
JOIN IN the singing and enjoy the beautiful music at this year’s EDP Festival of Carols, knowing that you are also helping to raise funds for the EDP We Care Appeal.
Much more than a carol service, this delightful evening which is put on by our sister newspaper, the Eastern Daily Press, is hosted by Chris Bailey, presenter on the Norwich local television station Mustard TV, and will feature the talents of The Festival Choir and Broadland Youth Choir under the musical direction of Carole Tims. The awardwinning Cawston Band will be returning in this its 130th anniversary year to provide the rousing music to the evening’s proceedings.
The event raises welcome funds for the EDP We Care Appeal, which supports unpaid carers around Norfolk. The appeal raises money for The Millennium Trust for Carers, and each year this trust gives out grants to make life a little easier, paying for items like washing machines and tumble dryers or enabling carers to take a short break from the important work that they do every day in looking after an ill, disabled or aged family member or friend.
This year the EDP Festival of Carols takes place at St Andrew’s Hall in Norwich on Wednesday, December 7, with doors open at 6.30pm and the performance beginning at 7.15pm (seating is on a first-come, first-served basis). Tickets are £7.50 each, and are available at Prospect House, Rouen Road, Norwich, NR1 1RE; by post to EDP Festival of Carols at this address (cheques made payable to Archant Norfolk Limited - please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope plus your name, address and phone number or email address), and online at www.edp24.co.uk/shop
