St Matthew’s hosted a candle lit reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
by Professor Michael Slater MBE on 8th December.
The packed house was enthralled as Michael brought each of the characters to life as he perfectly captured the essence of Dickens’ story of redemption and hope. It was a wonderful start to the Christmas festivities with The Bell supplementing an excellent evening with mulled wine and nibbles, and rare book sellers Maggs Bros and Jarndyce on hand with a unique collection of Dickens’ first editions.
Many thanks to the Langford PCC, village hall and everyone who came.
