Carols on Bournville Green and in Cotteridge Park 2014

As usual there will be Christmas carols on Bournville Green on Wednesday 24th December from 6pm.

The annual gathering is organised by the Village Council. Residents can bring along a torch or lantern to add to the atmosphere.

Also this year there are carols in Cotteridge Park n Saturday 20th December at 5pm by the car park.

The organisers said: “After 17 years we thought we’d have a change – still some carols, still some music and even a hot drink and a mince pie – but just at the right time to get Christmas proper started. Wellies & torches essential.”

On Sunday 21st December at 6.30pm in St Francis of Assisi Church there will be the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols: a traditional service of readings and choral music and carols. The church will also hold a midnight mass at 11:15pm on the 24th.
