Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Reserve your place for the Family Festival of Carols

24/11/2015

Residents are being urged to reserve their seats for the Service’s Family Festival of Carols before places run out.

"The Family Festival of Carols is always a popular event and this year is no different with seats being reserved very quickly. It is a real treat for guests from across the generations and it is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit."

Chief Fire Officer Peter Dartford

The popular festive event will once again take place at Lichfield Cathedral on Sunday, December 6 at 6pm.

Local children will act out the nativity play and the Lichfield Cathedral Chamber Choir will perform. Vice-Dean and Canon Dr Anthony Moore will preside over the service and there will be mince pies and tea and coffee afterwards.

Chief Fire Officer Peter Dartford said: "The Family Festival of Carols is always a popular event and this year is no different with seats being reserved very quickly. It is a real treat for guests from across the generations and it is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.

"The children always put on a really heart-warming performance and there are traditional Christmas carols throughout the service. The Cathedral itself is a stunning setting which makes the evening nothing short of magical. If you haven’t already reserved a seat, I would encourage you to do so and join us for a memorable festive event."

The free event is open to everyone and those who would like to attend. To book a place, email Nicky Westwood at n.westwood@staffordshirefire.gov.uk or call 01785 898979 as soon as possible.
