The Town Council’s Carols on the Causeway event promises to look a bit different – and very Christmassy indeed – this year.
On the evening of Thursday 19th December, hundreds of children will light up the town with their own, personally designed Christmas lanterns on their way to join the carol singing.
The Council visited schools to ask pupils to make lanterns and use battery operated tea lights provided by Marlow Town Council. The schools will select three of the best from each school and the Mayor will judge the overall winners.
At 5.45pm children will congregate around the Town Christmas tree on the Causeway with their lanterns. Children will sing a few of their favourite carols and Christmas songs. The Mayor will announced the nominees and winners and hand out prizes. Chocolates will be handed out to children.
Mulled wine and mince pies will be available and Marlow Rotary Club will be providing hot roast chestnuts free of charge.
After the prizegiving, at approximately 7.00pm the carol singing will continue, with members of the Choral Society around the Christmas tree, accompanied by Marlow Town Band
