Carols at the Castle Incorporating Light Up A Life

21st December 2017 at Newark Castle

We are pleased to invite you to join us again at Newark Castle on 21st December, where we will hold our Carols at the Castle service which will include Light up a Life. The evening will commence at 5pm. Our carols, readings, time for reflection and remembrance will begin at 6pm. This year, we are bringing an additional element to Light up a Life.

We would like to invite everyone who donates to our appeal and attends the event, to bring a photograph of their loved one(s) along with a message to hang and display on our memory wall of light during our service*.
Christmas is a special time of year, but for many who have lost a loved one, it can be a time with both sad and happy memories. In Lighting up a Life at Christmas we hope that this time of reflection will bring comfort to you. It is free to attend and everyone is welcome.
