As this is the season of goodwill to all, another fantastic creative idea has been born in Athlone: a community carol singing event in Athlone Civic Square on Saturday December 11 from 3pm to 6pm.
Santa Claus is due to arrive at 3pm on the day, which will also feature a performance of ‘Twas the night before Christmas’, and of course plenty of carol singing. A post box will be available to post Santa letters.
Hot chocolate and treats will be on sale, with an after party in 41s from 6pm to 8pm featuring Santa Claus the Movie on the big screen with refreshments, food, and mulled wine for adults.
Please come along and join in the festive fun.
Any group or person who is interested in participating and joining in the craic and festive spirit is asked to contact Linda-Jo Quinn or Helen McCaul on (090 ) 6494555 to get your song sheet. Everyone is welcome to join in and you don’t have to be a good singer either!
