Caldecote’s historic St Mary Magdalene Church will be the setting for a candlelit reading of classic Charles Dickens tale A Christmas Carol on Sunday evening from 8pm.

Mathew Jones will be summoning up the spirit of the author, who was renowned for public readings of his work, in an event which will raise funds to support church restoration.

You can reserve £10 tickets – mulled wine and mince pie included – by contacting him on mathewbjones@gmail.com.
