Mayor's Carol by Candlelit Service

Published Monday, 1st December 2014

The Mayor’s annual Carols by Candlelight Service will be taking place on Thursday 11 December 2014 at 6.30pm in St. Mary’s Parish Church, Melton Mowbray.

This is an event which welcomes the whole community with many local clubs organisations, and businesses being represented.

Children and young people from Swallowdale Primary School, Sherard Primary School, and Brooksby Melton College’s Glee Club will be performing a selection of carols and seasonal music all in the beautiful candlelit church.  The congregation will also enjoy music from the Church Choir.

The service will be led by the Reverend Kevin Ashby with support from the Church’s Musical Director, Mr James Gutteridge.

The Mayor, Councillor John Wyatt, said:  “This event has come to be one of the most unmissable dates in the Mayoral Calendar.  A community event of this nature requires the commitment and smooth co-operation between a number of individuals and groups to produce something so well supported and enjoyable.  The enthusiasm of everyone taking part makes this such a delightful evening.”
