Carols on the Common – by VG

We had carols on the Common every Christmas for about six years we were doing that and also in the summer.

Was this in the 80’s, 90’s?  The last one was 2005 and then the year of the centenary of the view from the top of the hill we did a very big one it was sponsored by Jason Debney, yes, anyway and we did a programme it was called Aspects of Richmond, obviously you couldn’t find enough songs and poems about Richmond itself but with some judicious altering of words they became about Richmond (laughter).
