Line-up of festive fun in Latimer Square

3rd December 2012, Christchurch, New Zealand

Christchurch’s Latimer Square will come alive this Saturday with the sights and sounds of Christmas-time chorus and family fun for the inaugural Carols in the Square event organised by St John’s Anglican Church, Latimer Square.

On Saturday 8th December from 4.30pm, the community picnic and carol service will feature The Opera Club choir performing a mix of festive sing-along favourites in the Square.

The evening’s entertainment is part of the Christmas On Latimer line-up of events, which features a seven-storey Telecom Christmas Tree decorated with 375,000 twinkling lights. The tree will be lit at about 9pm on Saturday.

For the young and young at heart, face painting, a sausage sizzle, kids’ games and bouncy castles will offer a variety of fun events for families attending the picnic and carol service.

“We warmly invite families to bring along a picnic and enjoy the evening’s free entertainment,” said James de Costobadie, Minister, St John’s Anglican Church, Latimer Square.

"This will be an enjoyable occasion for all who come, and an opportunity to hear the best news the world has ever been given. We are delighted to be able to put on an event which will help our city celebrate the birth of Jesus together."
