Doorstep Carols was a phenomenal success throughout the UK last year… and the tradition is growing. If you want to take part this year, Hurstpierpoint is joining in in a BIG way.
HURST RETHINK COMMUNITY DOORSTEP CAROLS
6 TO 7 PM ON WEDNESDAY 15TH DECEMBER
Facebook Group: Hurst Doorstep Community Carols – for questions, ideas and your images.
Doorstep Carol singing – uniting neighbours, across streets, villages, towns, city and the UK to celebrate Christmas.
Anyone who wants to participate will find it is amazingly easy – see here:-
The carols will be broadcast over BBC Sussex Radio from 6-7 pm on Wednesday 15th December (same across BBC local radio stations throughout the UK) so it’s a simple case of tuning in on a mobile phone or other device and attaching a speaker to share the carols with your neighbour group. Then sing your heart out!
Here’s the full ingredients for a happy time:-
Visit the website www.doorstepcarols.co.uk
Invite your neighbour Group – especially focussing on those not online
Download, print and share the programme of Carols and words
Ensure any local musicians and budding musicians know they can download sheet music and everyone would love them to play along.
Organise a device and speaker to broadcast the music
At 6.00 on 15th December, tune into BBC Radio Sussex Carol broadcast
Sing, Sing, Sing
Dress up, serve mince pies, pour mulled wine, be joyous

All variations of the above are up to you. Maybe we have some local choirs that will stroll the streets and join in as they sing. It’s your call!
And now for the jewel in the crown – in Hurst, we have the church bells ringing out at 7.00 pm on 15th – so huge thanks to Sue Elrick and our lovely bellringers who are giving up some of their busy pre-Christmas time to keep that special, warm feeling going!
Look forward to hearing your voices above the rooftops of Hurstpierpoint.
