The run up to Christmas can start to seem a bit of a chore when you have to battle through busy shops, crowds on the streets and endless lists. But fear not. There’s an event just around the corner guaranteed to make you feel genuinely festive again, by combining great music, mince pies and a drop of mulled wine.
On Tuesday, 9 December, the Walthamstow Village Residents’ Association is holding its annual Christmas carols on the square, aided by East London Brass – the band that’s been accompanying the event in recent years – and led by Philip Creasy. And of course, your voices are invited to join in.
