Christmas Eve sees the annual gathering on the Bournville Green for the Carols on the Green service, beginning at 6pm.
A wonderful Bournville tradition stretching back over 60 years, under the light of Bournville’s famous Christmas tree and to the magical accompaniment of the Carillon bells, thousands of people gather to celebrate the imminent arrival of Christmas by singing a selection of traditional carols and listening to readings taken from the bible. The service is organised by the B30 churches and is led by the Reverend Peter Babington from St Francis Church.
Visitors are encouraged to bring a lantern of some description to add to the atmosphere.
Do give generously after the service to the bucket collection organised by the Bournville Village Council which goes towards supporting worthy local charities.
