Audlem’s annual ‘Christmas around the tree’ concert took place on the evening of Wednesday 22nd December 2021 adjacent to the Christmas tree on the Square in the centre of Audlem.
The event featured Crewe Brass who led the service for the 32nd consecutive year!
Christmas carols sung by the audience were ‘Away in a Manger’, ‘Oh Come, All Ye Faithful’, ‘Silent Night’, ‘Jingle Bells’, ‘Good King Wenceslas’, ‘Ding Dong! Merrily on High’, and ‘While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks’. The evening reached a crescendo with a rousing rendition of ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’.
The rain didn’t stop everyone there from enjoying the festive singing and they cheered and clapped the band throughout and had an extremely festive evening with many wearing Santa hats and tinsel.
Warm soup was provided by Alan from The Lord Combermere pub-restaurant.
‘Christmas around the tree’ was organised by ADAS (Audlem District Amenities Society). For further information relating to ADAS please visit their website: https://www.adasaudlem.org/ or Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Audlemvillage
