Sing Carols by Candlelight
Give those vocal chords a workout with timeless hymns and Christmas carols in St. Mary’s Church in Fetcham on December 6th and raise money for Transform who support the homeless and most vulnerable in our community. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served at Fetcham Park following the service. For more info visit Transform Housing Candlelit Carol Service.
Feast on Festive Goodies at a Farmers’ Market
Ripley’s famous Farmers’ Market has a decidedly festive feel on December 9th. From 9am to 1pm there’ll be stalls selling Christmas cakes and puddings, charity Christmas cards, door wreaths and other seasonal fare. With carols by children from Ripley Primary and a visit from Mr Claus himself, this promises to be a merry morning out for the whole family. Visit Ripley Farmers Market.
Remember the true meaning with the Nativity
Experience the Christmas story in a new way from 13th – 17th December with the Nativity at Wintershall Estate. Dramatic and intimate, the story begins in the open air with a walk with the shepherds through the magical grounds. The audience then take their seats in the atmospheric working barn, where the story unfolds of how Jesus changed the world. A beautiful production with a large cast of players and animals. Mince pies and hot drinks available before the show. Parental guidance advised for under 5s. For tickets email: firstname.lastname@example.org
