Spirit of Christmas lies in Tattershall

Tattershall’s two medieval buildings – its castle and church – came together for an annual candlelit carol concert, providing an evening of festive song, accompanied by the musicians of Mareham le Fen Victory Silver Band.

This year was another sell-out event, with the programme starting in the castle where the band played some festive songs, before continuing in the atmospheric interior of Holy Trinity Church.

Lights were extinguished, candles lit and the story of Christmas delivered through readings by church volunteers and staff.

Carols were sung, with the highlight being a rendition of Away in a Manager by the children present.
