Friday 8 December

Carols from Derbyshire


North Derbyshire and South Yorkshire have a strong tradition of singing local carols. Throughout November and December, in one village after another, people gather in pubs or village halls to sing their own carols. Many of these carols are unique to that village. If you haven’t come across the local carols, this is a good opportunity to find out about them. We will be singing a selection of carols, from villages such as Sparrowpit, Foolow, Eyam, Hathersage. and Castleton, together with some ‘ordinary’ ones.

Song sheets will be available on the night, or you can download them from the Music page of this web site.


Mulled wine and 'festuve food' will also be provided.


Admission is free, but there will be a collection for charity.
