An Old South Downs Christmas

 An Old South Downs Christmas
A charity evening of folk songs, carols, readings, mince pies and mulled wine!

Start the Christmas season off with an evening of seasonal carols, songs and readings.  The South Downs Society invite you to join them for an evening with folk singing trio, Emily and the Hares, who will present a selection of beautiful and rousing Christmas and wintertime songs and carols, once popular in the South Downs, some of which date back to medieval times.  They will also be reading evocative seasonal descriptions, from such great South Downs writers as Hilaire Belloc, Rudyard Kipling and Edward Thomas.  Plenty of opportunity for audience participation, helped along with mulled wine and mince pies!

The event is open to the public as well as South Downs Society members.  It takes place on Tuesday 17 December at All Saints Centre in Lewes and starts at 7.15 p.m.  Tickets (which include mulled wine and mince pies) are £9.50 each.  Funds raised go to help the work of the South Downs Society (a registered charity).  Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance.

Jane Major from the South Downs Society says “The evening promises to be a treat for all those with a love for the spirit of the Downs and for Christmas past.  Last year we ran this event in Hampshire and it was a sell out, so buy your tickets soon!”
