Christmas Carols 2019

Saturday 11th January 2020

Christmas Carols 2019

(Carol) Singing in the Rain!

Everything was ready. The Storytelling Elf was reading to the children at the Library. Members of the Fulham Brass Band were assembling outside, ready to lead the Children’s Procession. The tree in the square was brightly lit and Santa was on his way.

And then the heavens opened and it rained and rained and rained.

But that wasn’t going to keep the Wick from enjoying our special evening. The band played, the Procession processed and everyone joined in with a rousing rendition of traditional carols round the tree.

Then a hush fell over the crowd and through the sound of the rain could be heard a bell, ringing loudly to herald the arrival of Santa himself. He wisely sat in the (dry) grotto where he handed out Christmas gifts. Who knew there were so many good children in Hampton Wick?

Thank you to everyone who helped continue Hampton Wick’s festive tradition this year, to the Fulham Brass Band and of course to everyone who came along and took part despite the weather. See you all next year!
