Hi everyone,
Was just wondering if anyone knew of any Carol Services in Lewes tomorrow evening? Can't find much on Google!

South Malling and Southover have nativity services at 15:30; and St John's has a crib service at 18:00. Then South Malling and Southover will both hold midnight mass, commencing at 23:00.
The carol services for these 3 churches have already been and gone.

Don't worry about it Ellie. A lot of people do that with my posts too! Have a good one.

This isn't an actual service, but it's a collection of old carols from Sussex with readings, dance tunes and a Sussex mummers' play. It's at St. Michael in Lewes (High Street) at 4.00 p.m. tomorrow and is free with a collection for church funds. There will be refreshments in the interval. The whole thing takes just over two hours.

Sorry, that didn't come out as clearly as I had hoped. Here's a fuller description of the event:
Shepherds Arise! Old Sussex carols, dance tunes & Mummers Play
[Shepherds Arise! Old Sussex carols, dance tunes & Mummers Play]
A selection of beautiful old West Gallery carols from Sussex villages accompanied by flute, fiddle, serpent, bassoon, clarinet, concertinas & recorder. Between the carols are readings about Christmas in Sussex in the past, and the musicians play lively dance tunes from old Sussex manuscripts. There is also a Sussex Mummers' play.
This is a lovely celebration of Christmas from earlier centuries, still full of the joy and delight it gave then.
The carols and dance tunes are from 18th. and 19th. century handwritten manuscripts mostly held at Barbican House, Lewes, by the Sussex Archaeological Society.
St Michaels Church Sunday December 27 @ 4:00pm
16:00 - 18:30
Free with collection
