Carols in the Square
Tuesday 6 December 2016
This year our talented Master of Ceremonies was Charlie Shakespeare (pictured left) actor, presenter and director of the Colour House Theatre at Merton Abbey Mills. He got things going at 6.30pm. Returning by popular demand the Mardi Brass Quintet was on hand once again, performing Christmas music and accompanying the rousing community carol singing which is always an important part of this popular annual event.
There were also choirs from local primary schools, church and community groups keeping everyone in tune.
Charlie was helped out 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.
At 7pm the Mayor of Wandsworth, Councillor Richard Field, switched on the lights and a stunning firework display lit up the sky.
Thanks to everyone who came. You were all in good voice! Have a very happy Christmas and good new year, and see you again in December 2017.
