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
