What a delight it was to return to the Chapel of St. Augustine, Tonbridge School, for our Middle & Senior School carol service.  Such splendid surroundings for atmospheric singing by school, congregation and choir.  The boys, as ever, sang beautifully, and the readers filled the cavernous space with their words.  This year we were joined by the London Fanfare Trumpets adding an extra dimension to our service.

The retiring collection was for St. Mary’s Kippington and West Kent Mind with £864.89 raised.  Thank you to those who attended for their generosity and our thanks to the Headmaster, Chaplain and Verger for the opportunity to have our service in Tonbridge chapel.

Here are three clips from the final moments of the service, recorded from the organ loft:
