On Saturday 13th December, Chris Eaton and Abby Scott will be in concert at St. Michael and All Angels Church, Middlewich at 7:30pm. The Middlewich Festival Choir, based at St. Michael’s, will also be taking part.
The evening will be a very special concert which will commemorate 100 years of the Great War and also celebrate the ultimate Peace and Hope of the Greatest Promise given to us at Christmas through the birth of Christ.
Chris Eaton is a contemporary Christian singer-songwriter who has recorded his own albums and also written songs for numerous artists: he wrote “Saviour’s Day” the 1990 Christmas number 1 for Cliff Richard.
Chis has written a new song called ‘1914 , The Carol of Christmas’ and it has been recorded by an ensemble of military voices and soloists. It is to be released as a single to raise money for the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, and ABF The Soldier’s Charity.
Chris says: "My hope and prayer is that my song '1914, The Carol of Christmas' will move and inspire all generations as they listen, to remember with honour and respect those, past and present, engaged in war, and be filled with hope for everlasting peace through the message of Christmas!"
The song will be available for download on iTunes from 15th December with 100% of the profits from the sale of the single going to the three charities.
Tickets for the concert cost £7.50 for adults and £5 for concessions with refreshments included. All proceeds will be donated to St. Michael’s Restoration Fund. Tickets are available from the Church Office at No. 28 Hightown or by calling 01606 619721.
A time once again for quiet reflection in this eventful Centenary year as the people of Middlewich come together in the middle of the town to remember the fallen. The procession leaves the Royal British legion Club in Lewin Street at 10.30am, and those taking part are asked to be at the Club before 10.20. This post also appears on The Middlewich Diary
11 o'clock on the morning of Remembrance Day, Sunday November 9th 2014 and the people of Middlewich pause to remember the Fallen, a century after the start of the Great War
Sheila McLeod I went to the music Hall Cabaret evening last night with the Buttered Muffin Theatre Company. All I can say is what a brilliant evening of entertainment! There was close-up magic at the tables, singing, juggling, comedy and music. Old school stuff, I know, but it was a wonderful nights' entertainment
Suzanne A Johns I totally agree!. The best I've been to in a long time
Sonya Edwards People don't know what they missed. I haven't laughed like that for a long time. A very good evening. When people say that nothing happens in Middlewich, they must be walking around with their eyes shut! Roll on the weekend for more entertainment!
Val Prince Two twelve-year old boys had a great evening too! They loved the magic tricks at the table. A brilliant night!
Cllr Bernice Walmsley I agree - great evening! I find that when friends from other towns visit they are all amazed at how much goes on in our little town, and the variety too.
