Carols in the Square Tuesday 6 December 2016
This year our talented Master of Ceremonies will be Charlie Shakespeare (pictured left) actor, presenter and director of the Colour House Theatre at Merton Abbey Mills. He'll get things going at 6.30pm and hopefully the music and fun won't stop until the Christmas tree lights go on and it's time to go home, or at least to retire into one of the square's bars or restaurants....
Returning by popular demand the Mardi Brass Quintet will be here once again, performing Christmas music and accompanying the rousing community carol singing which is always an important part of this popular annual event.
There'll be also choirs from local primary schools, church and community groups keeping us all in tune.
Charlie will be helped out (if that's quite the right word) by the zany trio Sleeping Trees, stars of Scrooge and the Seven Dwarves, this year's Christmas show at Theatre 503 above the Latchmere pub on Battersea Park Road.
They delivered their own special brand of Christmas mayhem from our stage last year, and are gleefully looking forward to repeating the performance in 2016!
There'll be santa hats for the youngsters, mulled wine and mincepies, Sambrooks beer, Christmas wreaths and decorations for sale, a raffle, and loads of other festive surprises.
And as ever the big question is - who will switch on the Christmas lights? Watch this space for more news!
As we always say - the countdown to Christmas can't start properly without Carols in the Square. Come along and join in the fun!
