Sheffield Carol Day

Free Entry
02 Dec 11:00 – 15:00

Soundpost present a daylong celebration of The Sheffield Carols in the Winter Gardens in Sheffield city centre. Whether you’re a seasoned caroller in the north-Sheffield pubs or you had no idea that Sheffield even has it’s very own carol tradition, Soundpost invite you to join in this rich musical heritage and sing your heart out. During the day carols will be performed by school children, local choirs, brass band and University groups. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with the tunes or the words as help will be on hand and free carol booklets provided. 

Pop along, listen to some fantastic musicians and join in with some carols to kick off the festive season!

These rousing carols, which are more often heard sung with gusto over a few pints of local ale than in an indoor garden, actually pre-date traditional carols. If you’d like to delve even deeper into the village carol traditional, Soundpost are pleased to offer a Carols Workshop with Ian Russell on the 9th December in Dungworth.
