Carol Singing in Strathbungo

A few of us thought that carol singing up and down the Squares in Strathbungo this Christmas would be a good community event – as well as raise a few bob for charity.

So on Friday the 23rd December we propose that everyone who is interested in joining us (we are hoping for upwards of 30 people) congregate outside the new Bungo restaurant at six o’clock and we will take it from there wandering up Nisthdale, down Regent Park Square, up Queen Square, down Marywood Square and then back along Moray Place. We’d stop every couple of lamp posts for a carol before moving on. We’d need both singers as well as volunteers to knock on doors collecting money for Shelter Scotland who are looking after people who find themselves homeless. I imagine that it would take a couple of hours and those interested could stop for a drink at The Bungo (or wherever) afterwards to recover.

If you have an instrument do bring it along and you can lead the singers. (Though please no bagpipes – not so good for accompanying singers!)

Don’t worry if you can’t sing – come join us anyway. Six O’clock outside The Bungo on Friday 23rd December. We’ll provide carol sheets will post the names of the carols on line a day or two before so you can remind yourselves what they should sound like (Youtube is great for that!). Bring warm clothes and a candle or two (you’ll need them to both see the carol sheets and to keep warm!)

    Great idea – but I’m working a backshift that day and won’t be able to make it.
    Can I make an appeal for carols to make return to Bungo at the Bells this year? And Auld Lang Syne?
