Carols, fireworks and mulled wine will all feature at the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice’s Lights of Love concert this Christmas.
But the centrepiece will, as usual, be the Christmas tree decked out with handwritten messages of love, remembrance and inspiration.
For thousands of people across the area, Lights of Love has become a key event in the festive calendar, offering the chance to take time out of the hustle and bustle of Christmas preparation to remember loved ones.
This year’s carol concert will take place on Sunday in the gardens of Thorpe Hall, in Longthorpe, Peterborough, with the mansion house as the backdrop. Doors will open at 5pm with the carol singing beginning at 5.30pm. The concert will be rounded off with a firework finale at 7pm.
During the festive event, which is free to attend, Thorpe Hall’s Chapel will be open to visitors.
