Related topics: Leisure, culture and heritage

Come along to Shrewsbury’s historic Square on Wednesday 18 December 2013 for a magical start to the festive season.  Filled with traditional Christmas music and songs, the town’s annual Carols in The Square is the perfect event to get you into the Christmas spirit.  And, back by popular demand, there will be snow guaranteed. 

Starting from 5.30pm, the town will come alive with festive merriment, music and songs for all the family to enjoy. 

Organised by Shropshire Council and supported by Shrewsbury Town Council, the traditional festive singalong will be led by Wem Jubilee Band, and Halfway House Male Voice Choir.  Don’t worry if you don’t know the words as carol sheets will be provided. 

BBC Radio Shropshire presenters Eric Smith and Claire Ashford will be hosting the event, which will be broadcast live on the radio and online.  Eric will once again be hotfooting it from the stage of Theatre Severn, where he’s appearing as The King in this year’s pantomime Sleeping Beauty.
