Landkey Carols – learn the songs

5 November 2021 - 11 December 2021
Landkey Village Hall, Landkey, Devon, Barnstaple, EX32 0HF

Learn Traditional Carols from Landkey, North Devon

Learn traditional carols from North Devon, wherever you are in the world! On demand learning videos will be available for 15 local versions of Christmas carols. For those local to the area, there will also be in-person rehearsals near Landkey and a public carol sing in December!

We hope the blend of online learning and in-person sessions means the opportunity to learn these traditional carols reaches both local people, those further afield, those that prefer to stay at home, and those that would rather be away from the computer.

All ages are welcome and you do not have to have done any singing before to take part.

If you joined us online to learn some Landkey Carols last year, we’d love to welcome you back. 10 of the carols we shared in 2020 will be shared again, but there are five more that have been specially arranged for this year’s project.

To access the online sessions and join the online rehearsal, simply join the online group on our dedicated teaching website using the ‘book here’ link at the top of this page. Choose your price to take part: £1, £5 or £10.

The first set of carols will be released on Friday 5 November.

A second set will be released on Friday 12 November.
