DUCK RACE CANCELLED, CAROL CONCERT GOES VIRTUAL

John Whitehouse Uncategorized

Kenilworth Lions have taken the regrettable but necessary decision to cancel this year’s traditional Boxing Day Duck Race in Abbey Fields because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. This much-loved event has been re-scheduled to take place on  Easter Monday 5th April 2021, so watch out for further details in the new year.

However, although it is not possible either to hold this year’s pre-Christmas “Carols in The Park” event in Abbey Fields on Saturday 19th December, the whole concert is going virtual with a YouTube video being premiered on that date. The virtual Carol Concert will follow as closely as possible the format of the usual event, and will feature singers from a number of local choirs and singing groups, the Salvation Army Band, and contributions from local school children. More details of the concert and how to access it will be published nearer the time.

With nearly all the usual Christmas events in Kenilworth being cancelled this year, the Lions hope that their virtual Carol Concert will gain wide support from local people and help to bring the community together to celebrate the festive season in a safe and enjoyable manner.
