LAST YEAR OUR FAVOURITE "SHEFFIELD CAROLS" PUB HAD A SURPRISE VISIT FROM NBC, THE AMERICAN NEWS CHANNEL, COMPLETE WITH CAMERAS AND MICROPHONES. WORD HAS SPREAD AS FAR AS THE USA OF OUR STRANGE CAROL SINGING TRADITION.  THEY FILMED US, WARTS AND ALL. AND THERE ARE QUITE A FEW WARTS IN THERE.

THE CAROL SINGING SEASON BEGINS THIS WEEK AND CONTINUES UNTIL NEW YEAR'S DAY. ANYBODY IN THE SOUTH YORKSHIRE/ NORTH DERBYSHIRE AREA CAN GO ALONG AND JOIN IN, THERE ARE VERY FEW TUNES THAT ANYONE WILL RECOGNISE, ALTHOUGH IN ONE PLACE THEY DO SING "WHILE SHEPHERDS WATCHED" TO THE TUNE OF "ON ILKLEY MOOR" (TRY IT.)

IF ANYBODY FANCIES A GO, THE PROGRAMME IS AVAILABLE ON THE "LOCAL CAROLS" WEBSITE

    Loved it pansy! What a lovely tradition and everyone looked very happy, group singing is a great tonic especially when done like that.?

    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
