Carol service announced for printing community

November 28, 2011 by  

A special carol service has been announced that is to take place especially for members of the printing community this Christmas.

The carol service is being organised by the British Printing Industries Federation, an organisation that supports the printing in industry and printing companies from Ayr to Accrington, throughout the UK. The service will be held in association with a number of organisations, including Unite the Union.

The service is due to take place in London at St. Bride’s Church on 14th December at 6pm. The service will feature a selection of Christmas songs, old and new, sang by St. Bride’s choir. There will also be the opportunity to hear seasonal readings from members of the printing community and the service will be followed by a reception where mince pies and mulled wine will be available.

Located on Fleet Street and with a long-running history with journalists, newspapers and printing, St. Bride’s church is an ideal venue to hold the Christmas event at. Kathy Woodward, an executive with the British Printing Industries Federation, commented on the carol service, saying:

“What better way to celebrate a happy end of what has undoubtedly been a tough year than by joining together in an event which holds a special place in the affection of many people in our industry. Christopher Wren’s St Bride’s Church is also the perfect setting, as it has been the spiritual home of printing for over 300 years.”

Places at the carol service can be reserved by calling 020 7915 8338.
