I’ve been so busy recently that I am not my usual organised self – I’d normally expect to have all the presents bought and possibly even wrapped by now. I really do need to get a move on…
I will, however, be making time for some of the local events taking place in the run up to Christmas to help get me into the festive spirit. There’s plenty going on, including the St Nicholas Festival in Whitley Bay from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th December, which includes the ever-popular Christmas Fayre at the Spanish City Dome on the Sunday – an event we always enjoy.
For those who enjoy music, there will be a Carol Service to accompany the annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Tynemouth Village Green on Thursday 5th December, and there are Christmas Carol performances by Whitley Women’s Choir on Sunday 8th and Saturday 21st December. In Accord Choir are giving a Christmas concert at North Shields Methodist Church, also on the 21st.
Looking ahead to the New Year, Whitley Bay Pantomime Society celebrate their 50th anniversary by performing Aladdin at the Playhouse from 14th – 19th January, so grab some tickets while you can!
You’ll find more details of all these and other events in our community pages here.
