About the Event
Come and enjoy this traditional carol service at All Saints, Northallerton. The service starts at 6pm on Saturday 18th December 2021 however come along early and hear festive organ voluntaries from 5:30pm. This year the service is supporting the UNICEF VaccinAid appeal. For every £5 donated at the festival, 4 COVID vaccine shots will be donated to those vulnerable in developing countries.
Attendance is free however due to the pandemic tickets will be required this year. This service is usually extremely busy and so this year will be limited by tickets (there will be no crowding or standing room as per previous years). We advise early subscription to tickets to avoid disappointment.
This service of Carols and Readings tells the great story from Adam & Eve to Mary, Joseph and Jesus, the Shepherds and the Wise Men. It has been made famous by the radio broadcasts from King’s College Cambridge since 1928, but it was first devised by E.W. Benson, later Archbishop of Canterbury, for use in the wooden shed, which served as his Cathedral in Truro, on Christmas Eve 1880.
The service features carols sung by the choir and also well known carols for the congregation to enjoy.
Choir directed by Tom Honeyman
Organist: Andrew Cantrill-Fenwick
Led by The Rt Revd Gordon Bates
