The Quadrant Shopping Centre Swansea is urging the people of Swansea to join them for a Christmas Carol pop-up service between 6pm – 7pm on Wednesday, December 15th.

The hour-long carol service is part of a UK-wide Doorstep Carols initiative, which saw 150,000 people participate in across the UK, in 2020.

Led by local choir, The Voices Choir, the service will be located outdoors, near the New Look entrance to The Quadrant. People are being encouraged to come along, warm up their vocal cords and unite in Christmas song.

Other areas across the UK taking part, include Trafalgar Square, Great Ormand Street Hospital, Winchester Cathedral and so many more. Participant numbers are expected to reach the one million mark this year, as even more people come together to unite in song.

Commenting on the Centre’s involvement is Quadrant Shopping Centre Manager, Lisa Hartley: “It’s an absolute pleasure to be part of such a powerful UK-wide initiative, which is more important now than ever. We have been through so much the past 20 months that initiatives like this, where people come together safely, is vital in boosting morale and igniting a true sense of Christmas and community spirit.

“We hope that our customers stay in town a little longer to embrace the Christmas carols which The Voices Choir will so beautifully lead on. Just turn up near New Look at 6pm on Wednesday the 15th of December to join us, whether you can sing or not, it’s about embracing the true spirit of Christmas.”

As well as encouraging people to join in in their streets and community spaces, Doorstep Carols has engaged with children’s hospitals who will be streaming the music on wards so that children can join in song with parents they are separated from.  Hundreds of care homes are doing the same.  The military are streaming to overseas soldiers to enable them to sing with their loved ones back at home, hospices, schools, individuals shielding in their homes, this is an opportunity for music to connect even the most isolated this Christmas.
