Let’s face it, carols are an essential part of Christmas. And for 15 years “Christmas Voices” have ensured that both residents and visitors on the island at Christmas time can enjoy listening to and singing along with a number of traditional carols.

The “Voices”, formerly under the leadership of Deirdre Macfarlane-Archer, is now being led by Tim Macer, a full-time resident of Lanzarote. Several new singers have joined the group this year and rehearsals began in October. The programme for 2018 contains many old favourites but with the addition of a new surprise arrangement of ‘The First Noel’, the ancient harmonies of the ‘Coventry Carol’ and a little touch of Hollywood in the form of ‘Silver Bells’.

The performances will be as below. All are welcome and entry is free of charge. However, donations are invited to raise money for Calor y Café, an Island-based charity that provides practical support for the homeless and others in need.
