Coming of Christmas Dorchester Abbey
Dec 08 2016
Doors open at 7.00pm
Join us in the historic Dorchester Abbey for this much loved festive event. The beautiful Abbey will be bathed in the glow of over 1,000 tea lights, as we enjoy festive music performed by the wonderful internationally renowned Magdalen College Choir and some wonderful readings. This year we are delighted to announce that our readers will be the actor Martin Clunes, OBE and actress Caroline Catz*. Martin is a Patron of Hft and is best known for portraying Martin Ellingham in the ITV drama series Doc Martin and Gary Strang in Men Behaving Badly. Caroline is best known for her role as Louisa Glasson in Doc Martin, starring alongside Martin Clunes and for her role as Detective Inspector Helen Morton in DCI Banks.
Tickets will include a programme and we would be delighted to invite you to join us for some festive mulled wine and mince pies in the Abbey after the concert.
All proceeds raised from this concert will go towards supporting our ‘Bytes Size Learning Project’ at our service in Milton Heights, Oxfordshire. This course provides individually designed training, in 'bite size' modules, in catering and hospitality; enabling people with learning disabilities to develop skills and qualifications so they can find supported employment within the catering sector.
Tickets cost £23 including the event programme and festive refreshments and can be bought in the following ways:
