So does anyone fancy some Carol Singing then?

followed by some warm mince pies, and hot drink (or four).

I've no idea where or when, or how we can do this, so any suggestions welcome.

I'm up for some Carol singing. There's usually a special carol service at Southwark Cathedral (plenty of good pubs nearby) but not sure when it is this year - will get back to you.

Do they do a carols by candlelight anywhere in the area? I know it's a bit chilly over here, but really miss this at Christmas - it used to be a highlight, and we can always warm up with several buckets of mulled wine apres!

The (free) Festival of Lessons and Carols on Sunday 19 December at 6.30pm (at Southwark Cathedral [Anglican]) is also worth pointing out.

Thank you Rabbie & James.

What do we fancy, Fri the 17th or Sun 19th. Either is fine by me.

There is also a free carol service at St Paul's on Christmas Eve at 4 pm. I went to this a couple of years ago, and it was lovely. Getting in is a bit of a nightmare as it is unticketed, so it is worth getting there early.

(When I was there before, I saw some VERY unchristian behaviour in the "queue", and people let their kids run around noisily inside the church, too, which I thought was a shame. I bet they are the sort of people who take their kids to the Tate Modern members room....)
