Snow guaranteed for Christmas Carols in the Suffol
The annual Suffolks Traders' Association Christmas carols event takes place in Suffolk Parade, Cheltenham from 6.30pm on Wednesday 3rd December 2008.
This free, non-commercial, community event brings together local residents and over seventy businesses to celebrate the spirit of Christmas. Sing along by candlelight with the Cheltenham Bach Choir and the Cheltenham College Junior School Choir. Father Christmas always finds time to pop down to collect those all-important Christmas wish lists and there will be stalls with mulled wine, mince pies and other festive treats
Michele Beint, garden designer and Chairman of The Suffolks Traders' Association says, “The village atmosphere here in the Suffolks lends itself perfectly to an evening when everyone gathers together to sing Christmas carols, marking the beginning of the festive season”.
The Suffolks is just five minutes walk from Cheltenham’s town centre. This Regency enclave, described as 'Cheltenham's secret gem', has an eclectic mix of independent shops and businesses, along with some of the best-known local restaurants.
The Traders' Association is delighted to announce that, The Suffolks' Christmas poster has been created by Cheltenham-based illustrator Lo Cole. Lo's distinctive artwork features regularly in national newspapers and magazines. Signed copies of the poster will be available for purchase at the event.
Proceeds from the evening will be donated to local charity - Cheltenham Open Door.
