At the beginning of December we have our annual St Nicholas Festival. This year it will be on Thursday 5th December.
At 4pm we start in the Community Centre with St Nicholas craft activities, songs and refreshments.
When it has become dark…..
we light our lanterns…..
and walk through Littlemore to the Sisters of the Work, the place where John Henry Newman lived for some years.
After saying goodbye to the sisters we continue our procession through Littlemore and end up in the Church.
We leave our shoes in the vestry with a carrot or apple for St Nicholas’ horse, we sing some more songs and hope that St Nicholas comes round with some presents or sweets for the children. Great fun for the whole family.
