Huge Christmas concert left without a home

Laura Kearns 21st Aug, 2017   0

A POPULAR Christmas carol event has been left without a home after Kenilworth Castle announced they could not host the concert.

For the past 30 years Kenilworth Lions have held their festive show at the castle on the last Saturday before Christmas.

But they have been dealt a blow after English Heritage told the group they cannot use the building due to an event already being scheduled.

Now they are urgently seeking a new home for the concert.

Vice-president Gordon Henderson said: “This is a massive disappointment for us, and I know it will be for many local people. Last year’s concert drew record crowds, and we were hoping to repeat that success this year.

“We’re now urgently seeking a new venue in the town where we can organise an event, and have asked local councillors to support us in this effort. Things may be a little different this year, but we’re determined to put on something that maintains our tradition and gives local people the chance to get together as a community in the run-up to Christmas, singing the carols they know and love.”
