Christmas Carols at Community Pubs

The Leopard in Tutbury, is getting in the festive spirit, by hosting a Christmas Carol event next week.

On Tuesday 11th December from 7pm, local school children are performing Christmas Carols followed by the Tutbury Community Choir – Local Vocals – who will be performing a Christmas Concert from 8pm.

Admission to this event is FREE, however donations can be made to support the local school. The Leopard is a great example of a Community Pub, so if you’re enjoying a pint while listening to the concert, don’t forget to submit NBSS scores as Tutbury is one of our under-scored Branch regions!
