7.00pm - Lucia at St John's Church
Join Edinburgh Luciakör for an evening of Swedish Lucia and Christmas songs. Lucia is one of the most important traditions in Sweden, where we bring light into the darkness through song, candles and, of course, gingerbread. Originally celebrated at the Winter Solstice, a night thought to bring supernatural powers to life, Lucia is also a saint from Sicily, and the red ribbon around Lucia's waist is a symbol of her martyrdom. With this concert we hope to bring light not only to you in the audience, but also to those in Edinburgh without a home. All profit will be divided equally between our two chosen charities: http://all4pawsedinburgh.org/ http://www.streetwork.org.uk/ TICKETS: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/lucia-at-st-johns-church-tickets-39791965841
