Get into the festive spirit with Carols at the Cathedral

The Parks Trust the charity who cares for over 6,000 acres of parkland in Milton Keynes and helps to organise and enable over 500 events and activities each year in their parks, are again this December hosting their Christmas Carolling event.

Join them at the Milton Keynes Tree Cathedral on Sunday 12th December 2021. This free festive event will commence at 3.30pm with a procession starting at the Peace Pagoda car park, following a lantern lit trail led by Parks Trust elves, you’ll make your way along the redways where students from Arts1 Performing Arts School will treat you to short festive performances before you make your way to the main event at the Tree Cathedral.

Beautifully lit and bursting with Christmas spirit the open-air carolling service will be held between 3:45pm and 5:30pm at the Tree Cathedral and will include two performances from the Milton Keynes Brass Band and Arts1 Performing Arts School with plenty of opportunities for you to also sing along. This event is suitable for all ages and The Parks Trust are welcoming residents from across the city to attend.

This year, they will also be welcoming Willen Hospice who will providing mulled wine and hot chocolate for a small donation, raising much-needed funds for their vital charity. There will also be a collection for MK Food Bank at the carol service so please bring along donations, a full list of what they need can be found here.

This Christmas Carolling event is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to come together and really immerse themselves in the festive spirit. It’s a hugely popular Milton Keynes tradition and it wouldn’t feel like Christmas without it! Remember to bring along a lantern or a torch and to wrap up warm.

Julie Dawes, Events & Community Engagement Manager at The Parks Trust said: “We really enjoy our annual carolling event, it’s a lovely family friendly event which is perfect for getting into the festive spirit.”
