Christmas celebration with Carols by candlelight Good Afternoon singers SINGING in the Afternoon is proving to be a great pastime for hundreds of people across the region. In the weeks up to Christmas, the nine Good Afternoon Choirs will raise thousands of pounds for local charities. Started by West Country music man, Grenville Jones in 2009 with the Bath Good Afternoon which meets on Thursdays, other choirs have followed in recent years across the South West. Each choir chooses a local charity to benefit from local concerts and fundraising through the year and the last rehearsal is an open carol service with free admission. The Bristol Good Afternoon Choir meets on Mondays at Westburyon-Trym Methodist Church from 1pm - 3pm, led by Ben England. Their Christmas celebration takes place on Monday December 10 from 2pm – 2.45pm at Westbury-on-Trym Methodist Church and a retiring collection will be taken for The Great Big Kidney Thank You which is fundraising for The Southmead Hospital Charity Transplant Fund. They have already raised over £1,000.

GET into the Christmas spirit with Carols by Candlelight in the unique and beautiful setting of The Lord Mayor’s Chapel which will be lit with candles and orbs for the evening. Organised by the Friends of Quartet Community Foundation, it’s an opportunity to join in with some favourite Christmas Carols. The North Bristol Wellbeing Choir, a group who come together at the Greenway Centre in Southmead to boost their health and wellbeing through music, will perform carols and festive tunes on the night. The event takes place on Wednesday, 5 December, from 7pm-9pm at The Lord Mayor's Chapel, Bristol BS1 5TB (at the bottom of Park Street, by College Green). Tickets cost *£15 per person. *The price includes a suggested charitable donation of £7 per ticket.To book see: https://www. eventbrite.co.uk/e/carols-by-candlelight-in-the-lord-mayors-chapeltickets-51581096448
