Tarvin Methodist Church will once again be hosting their annual social celebration of the festive season and extend a warm welcome to the people of Tarvin to join them. ( click here)
The notion is to re-create the style of Christmas celebrations of a bygone time, when families would come together to eat. Since television, radio, video games and the other modern means of entertainment didn't exist, they would assemble in the 'best room' and would entertain each other with party pieces and stories.
Our 'Christmas in the Parlour' will be held at 7.00pm on Friday 12th December at Tarvin Methodist Church ' and all the family are welcome. We begin with one of our renowned hot meals (and pudding!), with plenty to eat for everyone and the entertainment which follows is a light-hearted and fun-packed collection of readings, songs and carols.
Special diets can be catered for (with advance notice).
Tickets are £8 each and can be obtained from Tarvin Methodist Church or from Charles Bradley (01829 741172).
