Chorleywood Christmas Festival - Friday 7th Dec

posted 17 Nov 2012, 11:35 by Unknown user
Chorleywood Christmas Festival, formerly Late Night Shopping, is to be held again on the first Friday in December in the main shopping streets of the village from 4pm to 9pm.  The evening will again incorporate live music, community singing and a Festive Market.
The event, a Chorleywood Community Initiative, has been made possible thanks to sponsorship by Herts County Council and the support of local businesses. The highlight of the Festival will be Choir Factor plus music by the Mick Flinn Band and Nana and The Scallywags.

Bigger Market

Festival goers will be able to enjoy a variety of food and drink, local shops will open their doors and Santa will be at Poores and Sheraton House. The Festival Christmas Market will be a bigger attraction this year with a variety of crafts, gifts, cards and homewares on sale. 

Choir Factor

Chorleywood Magazine in conjunction with Chorleywood Bookshop and Love Live Music are running Choir Factor, a competitive festive sing-off on the main stage on the night.

Newly formed singing groups from schools, churches, pubs, streets, local organisations, charities, places of work, as well as existing choirs are encouraged to take part. Choir supporters can vote by text for their favourite entry beforehand and the audience will be able to vote on the night.  All charity proceeds go to our local Mencap care home, Thorpedale on Homefield Road in Chorleywood. There will be two categories, Under 18s and Over 18s
email for entry form and T&C or pick one up at Chorleywood Bookshop.
