* Young members of Llangollen Silver Band play a carol inside the Abbey.
PEOPLE braved the chill night air to attend a pre-Christmas event arranged by Llangollen Museum at Valle Crucis Abbey yesterday (Friday) evening.
Carols at the Abbey, held under the floodlights of the ancient site, saw a programme of music provided by Llangollen Silver Band and Cor Meibion Bro Glyndwr.
To help keep out the cold there was a serving of mulled wine and mince pies.
Favourite carols including O Little Town of Bethlehem, Hark the Herald Angels and O Come All Ye Faithful were interspersed with seasonal readings such as Three Drovers, A Child's Christmas in Wales and Two Letters to Santa.
Prayers were led by the Rev Andrew Sully, vicar of St Collen's Church, Llangollen.
At the end of the evening there was a bucket collection in aid of St John's and the Silver Band.
* Members of Llangollen Silver Band provide musical accompaniment.
* Choristers from Cor Meibion Bro Glyndwr on song.
* Llangollen Deputy Mayor, Cllr Melville Mile, gives the reading Three Drovers.
