‘Sheffield Carol Singing’ at The Star, Whiteshill, Stroud 7.30pm on Wednesday 5th December – with help from the Rodborough-based Prince Albert Consort pub carollers. We also raised nearly £60 for Prostate Cancer UK and Stroud’s Talking Newspaper, ‘Five Valley Sounds’, for people who are blind and partially sighted.

The Sheffield Carols have been described as one of the most remarkable instances of popular traditional singing in the British Isles. They predate modern carols by over a century and are sung with alternative words and verses to those we are hearing today. Come and listen or better still join in. For the occasion Ken at The Star had three barrels of the award winning Kelham Island, Sheffield Real Ale.

Whiteshill group? There are now hopes for a Whiteshill group of singers – for those interested contact Philip Booth on 01453 755451.
