Durban Catholic Players Guild presents Carols by Candlelight at Greyville Racecourse on December 20 at 19h00.

The newest member of the Durban Catholic Players’ Guild, six week-old Liam Saunders, will play the part of the baby Jesus in this year’s performance of the Nativity story. His mother and father, Chantal and Cuan, will play Mary and Joseph, while older sister Shaylee is an Angel.

Families are invited to bring a picnic basket and enjoy themselves on the grassy area in front of the stands before the show. Those attending are requested to bring a toy (new or used) for the under-privileged. Toys will be brought to the manger in procession led by Bishop Barry Wood at the end of the performance.

Carols by Candlelight takes place at 19h00 at Greyville Racecourse on December 20. Gates open at 18h00. There is no entrance fee and the Carols will be led by a local choir. Candles and words of favourite Christmas Carols will be provided so that everyone can join in the singing.

Secure parking is available in the grounds. Seating is sheltered so the production will proceed under all weather conditions. For more information contact Dawn Haynes on 083 564 2929.
