Town centre users are being invited to gather around the Christmas tree, located in Market Place, with Hinckley and Bosworth Mayor, Coun. Ted Hollick, where they will sing Christmas carols four forty-five minutes and spread the festive spirit early.

Carols will be sang on Friday, 10 December, from 4pm to 4.45pm in the afternoon.

The congregation will sing a number of well-known carols – and they will be accompanied by members of the Stoney Stanton-based Living Rock Church, as well as local schools.

The service has been organised by Churches Together and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council (HBBC) – it will be led by Reverend Simon Wearn, Rector of Hinckley’s Clarendon Road-based Holy Trinity Church.

Executive Member for Town Centres for the Borough Council, Coun. Keith Nichols, said: “Thank you to all officers and Church Leaders involved in organising this event.

“It is heartening to see the community of Hinckley coming together to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas out in the fresh air.

“Everyone is very welcome to come along to this seasonal occasion and enjoy the festive atmosphere.”
