A MAGICAL evening of Carols by Candlelight is being held in Coventry to raise vital funds for Alzheimer’s Society.
As well as traditional Christmas carols, readings and delicious winter treats, the charity has organised a line-up of local musicians who will all perform at Holy Trinity Church on December 8.
The evening, which starts at 7pm, will be hosted by BBC Midlands Today presenter Mary Rhodes and her husband Duncan Jones, who has recently been elected as an Alzheimer’s Society trustee.
Highlights will include sing-along carols including performances from the Silver Linings Barbershop Chorus and the Rock Choir, while the Lord Mayor will be giving a special reading.
The concert will be ‘dementia-friendly’, with stewards on hand who have completed Dementia Friends information sessions and clear signs in the venue to help people find their way around.
Alzheimer’s Society provides local support to help people live well with dementia, as well as funding research into better care and treatments for the condition.
Tickets for the service cost £10 for adults, £5 for a child under-12 and £15 for a combined ticket for a person with dementia and their carer.
