Members of the public are invited to join the Mayor as he hosts an annual Christmas Carol Concert.

Sing traditional carols at St Albans Mayor’s annual Christmas Carol Concert on Sunday, December 10 to help raise funds for Rennie Grove Hospice Care.

The outdoor carol concert will take place at 4pm in front of the Clock Tower in the high street, St Albans.

The choir from St Peter’s Church will be performing at the concert, accompanied by St Albans City Band.

Hosting the annual event will be the Mayor of the City and District of St Albans, Councillor Mohammad Iqbal Zia, and his wife Mayoress Farhat Zia.

He said: “Come along and join in the singing at this community carol concert. It’s sure to get you in the mood for the festive season ahead.

“During the service, there will be a collection for Rennie Grove Hospice Care. We will also take a minute or two to remember loved ones who are unable to be with us due to illness or who have passed away."

Clergy from around the District will also be in attendance at the carol concert, including Rev Mark Dearnley from St Peter’s Church.

Everyone taking part in the carol concert will be invited afterwards for refreshments at a stall outside The Boot.

Proceeds of sale from the refreshments will be donated to Rennie Grove Hospice Care.
