Christmas Plays & Carol Concert

Friday 28 November

Christmas Plays at the Carisbrooke  Hall, at the corner of Seymour Street and Edgware Road, W2

Doors open at 2:00pm Performances begin at 2:30pm

This is a family friendly event but we do expect to have a courteous audience. To avoid younger children causing a disturbance during performances please keep them at gallery level where they will have the best view and can be taken out of the auditorium if they become too noisy or restless. This is near the cloakrooms and there is plenty of space for buggies. This is also the best position for parents who may have to leave during the performance.

We hope that as there will be an official DVD of the plays available before the end of the term, parents will be able to sit back and enjoy the performance without disturbance.

The Carisbrooke Hall will only admit guests who are on their list so please make sure you return the form below.

Children leave with their parents or carer  from the hall after the plays, which will finish about 3.45 pm.

Tuesday 9 December 

Carol Concert  at St John’s Church, Hyde Park Crescent, W2

Doors open at 2:00pm singing will begin at 2:30pm

All the children participate and this is your final – and not to be missed if possible - opportunity to hear the children play and sing before the end of the year. Under the direction of Mrs Hopkins, this is always a joyful event and friends and family are all welcome.

Children leave with their parents or carer from the church after the concert which will finish about 3.30 pm.

Fortunately, we had already met Lauren Mayer, a teacher we were very impressed with earlier this year, and are very pleased that she will be available to join us in January.
