In order to access John Kirkpatrick’s workshops, which will form the basis of the practice sessions in November, as well as the website’s ‘Members Page’, which contains recordings of all the tunes and parts for the carols we’re going to be singing, and a workbook containing all the words, you will need to register as a member.
2020 was obviously challenging in many ways and that included the continuation of Castle Carols. We were unable to access any support funding , and, obviously, the opportunity to raise money through donations on the door from members of the public who wish to join in with us throughout December was non-existent, so we were completely dependent on membership fees to get by.
We also wrote last year that we were very conscious of the fact that an event such as Castle Carols can make a massive difference to people’s wellbeing and we were keen to make it as accessible as possible. We know from members’ feedback what a difference it made to their lives in such a trying and, for many, scary time. We keep the costs to a minimum to help encourage people to join us and benefit from such a joyous experience.
Once again, in 2021 we will be using technology to help us reach a wider group.
We have no ‘war chest’ of funds but despite that we have made the decision to keep the membership fee for 2021 at last year’s reduced rate of £10.00 per person. This is a minimum amount – if anyone feels that they would like to donate more to our funds it would be very gratefully received.
On confirmation of your membership we will forward you the current password needed to access the recordings and workbook.
We look forward to you joining us!
