04. December 2017 · Comments Off on Advent Festival on Monday 4th December at 5pm in the hall · Categories: Festivals, Steiner education

The Advent Festival will be held today, Monday 4th December at 17.00. Everyone is warmly invited to share in this time of peace and tranquility which marks the beginning of, what often becomes, a very busy period in our calendar. It is also when we begin to look forward to the coming of the Christmas Light. In the dark stillness of the evening, children light a candle to the sound of gentle singing and music and place it in a spiral. Parents often comment on what a moving festival this is.
