You are invited to the biggest carol service nationally outside of London! Run by the University of Exeter’s Christian Union, it is an amazing opportunity that is not to be missed. On Monday 3rd December at 7pm, held at St James Park, over 3000 people will be gathering to belt out your favourite Christmas carols!
With free entry, a free mice pie and an opportunity to be immersed in the festive spirit, this is a date for your diary that truly marks the countdown to Christmas.
There will be performances from Exeter’s own, Edinburg Fringe-performing Semi Toned and Sweet Nothings plus Newtown Primary School and a BSL-signed performance by the Royal Exeter Deaf Academy to a backing track of the banger ‘This Is Me’. This carol service brings locals and students together, encompasses the essence of Christmas and aims to share the good news of Jesus’ birth with all people! There is room to sit for the elderly and disabled access, as well as an BSL interpreter accompanying the Royal Exeter Deaf Academy to ensure that it is an enjoyable and accessible evening that everybody from Exeter is welcome to! This is a great night of community and opportunity to get into the festive spirit! Alex Williams, the CU President, writes
“We’d be delighted if you could join us for this year's Carol Service! It’s a really special event that brings students and locals together. Each year we put this on to gather as many people to celebrate the good news of Christmas.” See you there!
