Carols Around Lymm - 2020

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who joined in. You weren’t alone. We had hundreds of people joining in from across the village and further afield with people singing along from the US, Africa and across Europe.

We would love to see your photos of you taking part. Please share them on Facebook or Twitter with hashtag #LymmCarols2020 and we will collate together for a gallery on here and Facebook.

From all the team at Lymm Radio and Lymm Parish Council, we wish you all a very merry Christmas!

Till next year!!

‘Carols at the Cross’ is a long-standing Lymm tradition hosted by Lymm Parish Council. Several thousand people usually gather in the Village Centre on Christmas Eve to sing carols and traditional Christmas songs accompanied by Warrington Brass.

The Covid-19 crisis has made the traditional event impossible this year, so the Parish Council is working with Lymm Radio to create a virtual opportunity for the community to come together safely.

How it will work this year:

  • Between 7.00 pm and 8.00 pm on Christmas Eve, Lymm Radio will broadcast the tunes we sing to every year.
  • The public in Lymm are invited to sing along at home, on doorsteps and in their gardens staying in their family groups or bubbles and maintaining safe social distancing. (Do not congregate at Lymm Cross)
  • The words for the carols are available for download on this page (big green button below) and also lyrics for each carol will be displayed on this web site in turn to allow people to sing, reading the words straight from their phones or tablets.
  • You will be able to listen to LymmRadio directly within this webpage so you can listen in and read along with the words all in the same place!
  • Share photos of you and your street singing on Twitter and Facebook with hashtag #LymmCarols2020 and we’ll create a gallery for this special occasion.

We hope that Lymm’s virtual ‘Carols at the Cross’ will bring the community together in the traditional way at the end of this very difficult year and will be enjoyable in a new way.
