The ballot opens this week for tickets to attend the Civic Christmas Carol Service. The traditional Christmas service includes readings, seasonal music and singing from the internationally acclaimed Farnham Youth Choir who won double gold at the European Choir Games 2019. The Civic Christmas Carol Service is hosted by the Mayor of Farnham and takes place at 7.30pm on 12 December at St Andrew’s Parish Church. 

To enter the ballot, look out for the form in this week’s Farnham Herald (due out on 14 November). All instructions are on the form, including the deadline and how to return it.

“The Civic Christmas Carol Service captures the meaning of Christmas beautifully and includes many of the traditions that we enjoy about this time of year. Each year, we allocate half the places at the service to representatives and volunteers from local good causes and community groups. The remainder are offered to the wider Farnham community to apply for through our ballot,” says Town Clerk Iain Lynch. “After the service, the Mayor will host a reception with light refreshments, thanks to the support of the Farnham Herald. Everyone who attends the service is invited.”

The civic service is a Farnham tradition that brings together people from all walks of life in the local community. It provides an opportunity for the Mayor, on behalf of the town, to thank local people and organisations who have contributed to town life during the year and for local residents to participate in a joint Christmas service.

The ballot will be drawn on 26 November and all successful entrants will be provided with their tickets by 6 December.
