Carols in the Square

Carols in the Square

The festive season is known for bringing with it the decorations, the food, the presents and the family, but if you're on the Isle of Wight during December, there's also no need to miss out on the community spirit.

Carols in the Square, organised by the Yarmouth Carnival Committee, promises to be a truly splendid experience, with one and all invited to come and sing their hearts out alongside the locals in a celebration of everything truly Christmassy.

There is no need to worry about cracking a note or messing up the lyrics as proceedings will be led by local group Slipshod Singers, as well as the children of Yarmouth and Shalfleet Schools.

Accompaniment will be provided by the capable Isle of Wight Salvation Army Band and, in the spirit of charity, all donations will be given straight to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice as part of their Lights of Love Service.

But that's not all - while the singing is undoubtedly a great attraction, the Christmas lights bedecking the square will also be switched on at 6pm by Yarmouth's Mayor Mr Stephen Cowley.

Kids will also be delighted to learn that Santa will be in attendance, so take them along to his grotto where they will receive a free gift and a fantastic festive photo as part of the fun.

The magical occasion takes place on Saturday December 14th, and with proceedings due to wrap up with plenty of time before 10pm, it is easy enough to get to Cowes to catch a ferry back to Southampton.

A remarkable spectrum of festive fun is going on across the Isle of Wight this Christmas, so be sure to make the most of it.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801666552-ADNFCR
