Community Choirs Unite At Caddington’s ‘Carols By Candlelight’

Dunstable’s community choirs sang together in perfect harmony this December, for a special ‘Carols by Candlelight’ performance.

The singers brought festive cheer to Caddington Grove care home, as the residents’ Caddington Choir, the Vauxhall Male Voice Choir and the Dunstable Rock Choir joined forces, last night.

The joyous evening, which also featured a mulled wine and mince pie reception, helped Caddington Grove’s residents, families and neighbours get in the Christmas spirit. 

For Kelly Cox, Caddington Grove’s Community Relations Lead, it was the perfect opportunity to bring the community together in celebration of the season.

Kelly said: “Carols by Candlelight is a magical event and a fantastic opportunity for us to finish the year celebrating with our community friends who’ve supported us throughout 2019.

“The singers were in fine voice, and the combination of Christmas songs and mulled wine left us all feeling warm and happy. Thank you to all the choirs who took part and to everyone who attended and made it such a beautiful event.”

Christmas is a busy time of year for the community choirs as Dunstable gears up for the season.

For Honorary Secretary of the Vauxhall Male Voice Choir, Brian Matthews, the Caddington Grove event was something special.

Brian said: "We've had a fantastic time, a terrific welcome and everyone has thoroughly enjoyed themselves, thank you for having us".

The Caddington Grove residents thoroughly enjoyed the performance and resident Gwen Boulton said: "The whole evening was 10 out of 10, it was well organised and a very enjoyable evening.”
