Event Description

Back for the 18th year! Open air singing of traditional carols led by Heather Maîr's "Pop-Up" choir. FREE ENTRY.

Christmas Carol singing in Stationer's Park, N8.

One of Crouch End/Hornsey's best- loved festive traditions.

Saturday, December 16th at 5.30-6.30pm.

Free entry (no ticket needed)

Donations to the Friends of Stationers Park welcome at the event

Join friends, family and neighbours in traditional seasonal song at our annual outdoor singalong.

What started as a random gathering of parents and toddlers in the dark 18 years ago has become a well-loved local tradition, now with the addition of some lighting and the park's resident cafe selling festive refreshments to warm your vocal cords.

Led by vocal coach Heather Maîr Thomas and her "pop-up" Christmas choir, we sing an hour of all the traditional carols in various harmonies and languages.

The event has evolved its own traditions over the years. For example...

  • Away in a Manger: We encourage the children to come forward and sing "Away in a Manger" by themselves

  • Silent night: To be sung in any language you know. (Previous languages heard have included Klingon and Cornish)

  • While Shepherds Watched Sung to the tune "Lyngham" traditionally sung in Cornwall, because our musical director is homesick.

Songsheets are available here

Bring a torch/phone

The Christmas choir consists of volunteer singers in festive hats, assembled from various singing and friendship groups. We lead from the front to encourage everyone to sing with gusto, providing descants and harmonies.
