Last night, many OGs, parents and friends of Downside joined together at St Mary’s Church, Hampstead, for a delightful Carol Service.

The Head Girl, Georgia welcomed guests, followed by the Downside School Choir singing in full voice, with a number of stunning solos. Click below to listen.

Readings were given by Andrew Hobbs, Head Master, Rupert Orchard (R74), President of St Gregory’s Society and Paul Keyte, Head Master at St Anthony’s Preparatory School, followed by Benediction from Dom James Hood.

We would like to thank Mgr Phelim Roland for inviting us to share his beautiful Church. After the Service, guests took a short stroll to St. Anthony’s School, where Paul Keyte, welcomed us for a glass of wine and canapés . 

The London Carol Service was the perfect way to end a busy Autumn of OG events and we look forward to seeing many of you in 2020.

From all of us at Downside, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
