The choristers entertain at the Reindeer Parade

On Sunday 4 December, the boy and girl choristers took time out of their busy schedule to sing for the crowds at the annual Wells Rotary Club Reindeer Parade. After Matins, the choristers grabbed a quick lunch before heading back to the Song School to don their antlers. They then walked in the bright wintry sunshine to the Market Place where they sang Christmas carols from the makeshift lorry stage for the many onlookers who were there to enjoy this much-loved annual event. Now in its 10th year, the Rotary Club's Reindeer Parade raises money for a local charity which this year was the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. The choristers delighted the many people who had come to see the Reindeer as they led the singing of carols, before they had to head back to the cathedral for evensong (with antlers reluctantly removed!).
