When Christmas was just weeks away, Wednesday 11th December was time for the Blue Badge Tourist Guides’ Carol Service.
The service took place at 19.00 at St Giles in the Fields near Tottenham Court Road tube station. More information about the church can be found at https://stgilesonline.org/.
The choir was led by Nick Morrison and as uaual was open to all enthusiastic singers. Rehearsals took place throughout December at the new Guild House in Baden Place, SE1. To help singers learn their parts Nick provided audio-files before the rehearsals.
The service included carols for everyone to sing along to along with, and religious and non-religious readings. It is alays open to ALL guides, including trainees, from any or no religious beliefs. No ID is required, and friends and family are welcome to attend.
Afterwards, seasonal refreshments were served for a small charge to cover costs. Christmas cards made by our very own Emily Dell were also available for sale.
If you would like to help in future by setting up for the service, stewarding, serving refreshments, or clearing up afterwards, please email Rachel Pearson on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to join future choirs you should, if at all possible, be available for at least three of the rehearsals. Please email Emily Dell on email@example.com for more information.
