News and views from The Kiosk, Russell Park, Bedford
It is very, very, VERY nearly Christmas! We’re holding a Christmas celebration here in the park on Christmas Eve, so that we can celebrate with the wonderful Kiosk community.
So on Christmas Eve afternoon, put down your wrapping paper, sellotape and those last Christmas cards, and head to Russell park for 4pm to join us with a mulled wine, hot chocolate, mince pie and a bit of carol singing.
There will be an opportunity here for a bit of festive dressing up. Perhaps you never got to be an angel in the school nativity play, and have a pair of tinsel-trimmed wings you’re itching to wear? Or a teatowel that you think might look particularly fetching over your head, shepherd-style? Or was your child disappointed not to be Mary, again? If you’ve got a blue dress, you know what to do ! We’re actively encouraging dressing up for Christmas Eve – perhaps a impromptu nativity scene will appear in Russell Park! Snowflakes, stars, Christmas fairies, reindeer and donkeys are all suggested outfits too! There will be free glow sticks for the kids, and if grown ups could bring head torches, lanterns or candles, then we can celebrate Christmas Eve in style by candlelight/torchlight!
It’s been a great year in the park, with hedgehogs, Halloween, Thanksgiving, cookies and coffee. We’d love to see you there to wish you a very happy Christmas! We’ll leave you with a few costume ideas, in case you need some inspiration…
And from all the team at the Kiosk – a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
