Again this year Mette and Charlotte, our Danish experts, will help us start the Advent time with the Danish tradition of binding your own advent wreath. In Denmark you use this wreath indoors for counting down to Christmas with four candles, but you can also come to this workshop to make a festive and welcoming wreath for your front door.
Come and buy seasonal gifts, crafts, home-bakes and produce in the beautiful setting of the Christmas Tree Festival. Apart from the stalls, the church will be full of beautifully decorated, real Christmas trees twinkling with lights.
Meet at the Traveller's Rest pub at 7.15 pm and then we will cross the road for some carol singing around the King's Court development. These are three roads on the other side of Huntingdon Road: Lawrence Weaver Road, Yeoman Drive and Burlton Road (see map below)
This is a joyful event for people of all ages. Come at 4.30 pm if you would like to make a christingle. There will be seasonal refreshments following the carol service.
There will be an act of remembrance to remember all who have died in war, and especially on this day to think of those with memorials in Histon Road Cemetery, who died at war.
