27 Dec PBEsq SPONSOR OF THE HENLEY LIVING ADVENT CALENDAR AGAIN IN 2017
Philip Booth Esq is delighted to be a sponsor of the Henley Living Advent Calendar again in 2017.
The Henley Living Advent Calendar is based on an original idea from Stockholm and began here in 2011. One of the first events of it’s kind in the UK, and certainly the first locally, it runs every evening from December 1st to 24th. Like a children’s Advent Calendar, a different window or door is opened at 6:15pm promptly each evening and a 30 minute performance is given to the audience assembled. This can include songs, carols, music, poetry, book excerpts, notes from local history or folklore, sketches, dance etc, all with a Christmas or winter focus to them. Each Venue is matched, by the Organising Committee, with a local performer or group of performers and a collection is made, and Raffle tickets sold, every evening for selected local Charities.
As well as being a sponsor we also hosted an event on the 22nd December at Henley Town Hall, where the surprise performance was the Phyllis Court Singers, who performed both Christmas songs as well as a whole host of other songs including a Rock n Roll medley. On the evening we were collecting money for Ronald McDonald House Charities in Oxford on the night.
