Celebrating Christmas with our Friends and Patrons

The Fulham Palace Christmas festivities have been in full swing since the first weekend in December.

Carols by Candlelight

The Friends of Fulham Palace organised another successful Carols by Candlelight on Sunday 3 December. Now in its fourth year, the annual event was attended by a capacity crowd of families in the Tudor Courtyard. Once again, the Addison Singers filled the air with classics such as “Good King Wenceslas”, “O, Little Town of Bethlehem” and “Once in Royal David’s City”. The audience participated in many of these with evident pleasure.

There were mince pies, gingerbread assortments, hot chocolate and mulled wine for sale,   which were, as ever, popular with adults and children. The occasion raised a record amount for the Friends – over £1,500, including generous donations.

Our heartfelt thanks to The Addison Singers for giving their time to make this a very enjoyable occasion, to our sponsors – Fullers Builders, Effectevent, Fullers Brewers and Meyer Homes, as well as Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose for the delicious Christmas treats. Their generosity is greatly appreciated.

Patrons’ Christmas Party

Christmas celebrations with our Patrons took place on Monday 11 December. New and long-standing Patrons braved the cold weather to join in the festive cheer at the annual Patrons’ Christmas Party. Guests were welcomed with music by The Tooting Broads who continued to play during the intimate drinks reception. Mariana Spater, Chair of Fulham Palace Trust summarised the highlights of the year in her speech and the evening ended with a beautiful musical performance by three of the Scholars from All Saints Church, including a very talented young pianist.

We wish all of our Friends, Patrons and Supporters a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2018!
