Christmas Extravaganza

At St Nicholas’ Chapel

Tuesday 3rd December

6pm-9:30pm

Kick start the festive season with an evening of free entertainment.

For one night only St Nicholas’ Chapel is being transformed into a Christmas wonderland. A collaborative event between True’s Yard FIsherfolk Museum and St Nicholas’ Chapel.

There will be a pop up cosy Christmas Market with plenty of mulled wine and hot chocolate. Games for all ages and a chance to pick up some perfect stocking fillers.

This will be followed by evening of entertainment including an organ recital medley of famous modern Christmas songs, Readings about Christmas Traditions Throughout History. All your favourite Christmas Carols performed by a variety of choirs including St Edmund’s School Choir, Heacham Girl Guides and the Guildhall Singers. Plus local talented artists Emily Blake and Sean Lang.

Not least a very special performance of A Condensed Christmas Carol! The incredible story of the old miser Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by four ghosts to warn him about the consequences of his actions! The title role will be played by Anthony Maley who recently entertained audiences as Mr Bumble in the King’s Lynn Player’s production of Oliver at the Corn Exchange.

The best part is that entry is free! Although donations are most welcome and any money raised on the night will support both charities and the community projects they are engaged with such helping people living with Dementia, free educational talks, professional training for young people and preserving heritage skills.
