Save the date! Warm up the mulled wine, light the fire, relax on your sofa and join us in song for the Downside Virtual Christmas Carol Service!

You will be warmly welcomed by the Head Master, listen to speeches from the Heads of School and be entertained by our wonderful Schola Cantorum in the magnificent Downside Abbey Church, accompanied by Director of Music, Mr McNamara.

Mr McNamara would like to include an item from a virtual parents’ choir, and all parents are welcome to take part. The plan is that you would record your contribution at home, and send it in for inclusion in the final edit. Please register your interest with the Music Department by 1st November 2020, indicating whether you are soprano/alto/tenor/bass/don’t know, and your level of skill, confidence and experience on a rough scale of one to Pavarotti! Once he has an idea of numbers and skill-level, Mr McNamara will choose something suitable and send further details and full instructions to those that responded. 

Should you wish to make a post-Service donation please click here. The total funds raised will be evenly split between Downside Abbey and the Downside School Bursary Fund.

Before the event we will send you a link, much as we did for this year’s Prize Day. We look forward to celebrating Christmas 2020 with you virtually.
