This year’s Lights of Love carol concert at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice is taking place tonight.
For hundreds of people across the area, Lights of Love has become a key event in the festive calendar. This year’s event will focus on giving guests the opportunity to remember, reflect and celebrate the lives of people close to them.
While the carol concert will take place outside, with the mansion house as the backdrop, Thorpe Hall’s Coffee Shop will be open for traditional warming snacks.
The entertainment will start at 6pm in the grounds of Thorpe Hall Hospice, in Longthorpe, Peterborough and finish at 7.15pm. Entrance is free.
Event organiser Suzanne Ostler said: “Lights of Love is a favourite with so many people who see it as the start of their festive celebrations. It’s a lovely way to remember and celebrate the lives of special people with family and friends in the run up to Christmas.
“This year our focus at the event will be our Lights of Love trees and the carol concert so we’re hoping all our guests will bring their best voices with them – along with scarves, gloves and hats to keep warm.”
