Mil­len­nium green lights up for car­ols un­der the stars

Herald Express - - What's On - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

AS THE year draws to a close, the Or­chard Mil­len­nium Green Trust in Buck­fastleigh is gear­ing up for an­other of its sea­sonal gath­er­ings un­der the stars.

The green will be the set­ting for Car­ols on the Green, a short con­cert fea­tur­ing Christ­mas mu­sic and read­ings which will be tak­ing place this year on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 5, from 5.30pm. Res­i­dents and vis­i­tors are in­vited to come and wel­come in the fes­tive sea­son and sing along with some clas­sic Christ­mas tunes. Pa­trons will also be able to en­joy some sea­sonal treats in­clud­ing a cup of warm­ing, mulled ap­ple juice.

Now in its sixth year, Car­ols on the Green is a free-to-en­ter fam­ily-friendly event for all ages and fea­tures a light se­lec­tion of mu­sic mixed with short read­ings.

Speak­ing on be­half of the trust, trustee Mau­reen Tuffnell said: “We are de­lighted to be bring­ing this fes­tive of­fer­ing to the town once more and bring­ing a lit­tle sparkle of early Christ­mas cheer to vis­i­tors.

“Join us for this gen­tle, light-hearted start to the Christ­mas sea­son and don’t for­get to bring your lovely lantern!”

As in pre­vi­ous years, Car­ols on the Green will once again be tak­ing place as part of the larger Buck­fastleigh Christ­mas fair, a tra­di­tional street event fea­tur­ing fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties, food and fes­tive stalls, and the carol con­cert will be or­gan­ised by the Rev­erend Tom Ben­son, who will also read short pas­sages from scrip­ture.

The evening will also be ac­com­pa­nied by a spe­cially in­vited ensem­ble of lo­cal mu­si­cians who will en­ter­tain guests with ren­di­tions of some Christ­mas favourites to sing along to.

Events co-or­di­na­tor Tre­for Jones said: “We are very pleased to be of­fer­ing a pub­lic event, by the com­mu­nity, for the com­mu­nity as part of the wider Christ­mas fair.

“Car­ols on the Green is in­tended as a gen­tle, fam­ily-ori­en­tated gath­er­ing to be en­joyed by pa­trons young and old.”
