Cartmel is the first location and the stunning 12th century Cartmel Priory in the heart of the village. Saturday 9th December is the date and the event is the Christmas concert in conjunction with the Cartmel Choral Society who’s choir of over 60 strong will be performing Hymn of Praise by Felix Mendelssohn, Christmas Oratorio (parts) by J.S. Bach and a selection of carols. The Cartmel Choral Society has been in existence for over 1000 years and is well respected and known throughout Cumbria. The setting of Cartmel Priory is a joy to sing in and for all the attendees. To warm everyone up mulled wine and mince pies will be served and the cost is just £10 per person for this extremely festive pre Christmas concert. Tickets can be purchased in advance from the Priory shop or on the night.
Looking to attend the concert then nearby Grange over Sands is a fantastic place to stay with Bay Villa Bed and Breakfast being a popular choice. Visit http://www.bayvilla.net for more details. Staying at Grange over Sands means visitors can take advantage of some last minute Christmas shopping in the lovely village of Cartel or Grange itself.
