The Durban Catholic Players’ Guild has produced the Carols by Candlelight in Durban every year since 1952. This year marks the 66th production and there will be an event this evening (December 17, 2018) at 19h00 at Greyville Racecourse.

“We believe in spreading the message of peace, love and joy at Christmas time. The story of the Nativity is performed, and traditional Christmas Carols are sung so that everyone can join in to celebrate the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago. Our Patron in Durban is Cardinal Wilfrid Napier who will attend the performance and deliver a special Christmas message and a blessing to all those present,” says the Guild spokesperson.

There is no entry charge for the Carols by Candlelight but patrons are asked to bring a toy for a needy child. Candles are provided. Enquiries to Dawn on 083 564 2929.
