Monday 18th December at Shrewsbury Abbey
The annual Shrewsbury Town Carol Concert will be taking place at Shrewsbury Abbey on Monday 18th December, with a 7pm kick-off.
The evening is always a great way to get into the Christmas spirit with carols and readings in the beautiful setting of Shrewsbury Abbey. This year sees the welcome return of “Of One Accord”, the Shropshire mixed voices choir, who will bring some festive favourites to life and provide some well-earned Christmas cheer. We’ll also be hearing about some of work of Shrewsbury Town in the Community, including their work with The Shrewsbury Ark who help those who are more vulnerable in Shrewsbury at Christmas time and throughout the year.
Revd Phil Cansdale, club chaplain, said that everyone is welcome at what is now an annual event in the life of the club. “If the singing on the terraces is anything to go by at the moment, we’re in for a great evening. Well known carols to join in with, some Christmas music, and the stunning location all come together for an amazing way to celebrate Christmas.”
“As the evening goes on we’ll also be having some Christmas readings and poems. On the pitch we might be flying high in the League, but in our lives Christmas can be a tough time, so we’ll have a moment to remember the most important gifts of love, joy and peace which lots of people need at the moment.”
The evening begins at Shrewsbury Abbey at 7pm, tickets are not needed, and entry is free to all. Donations are invited at the end of the evening towards The Shrewsbury Ark.
