Carols at the Castle
Over 400 people were welcomed to a special festive event at Hylton Castle this December hosted by Hylton Castle Mission. Adults and children braved the cold and dark evening to meet at the castle, coming together to sing traditional Christmas songs and carols in front of the 600 year old gatehouse. Local primary school children sang for an appreciative audience of parents, grandparents and local residents, with the Salvation Army adding to the atmosphere with a traditional brass accompaniment. It was a wonderful way to end the year at the castle, and perhaps the start of a new Christmas tradition!
