Comedians & Carols - Friday 10th December 7pm for 7:30pm start at St Mary's Church, Yate

We are privileged to be able to welcome the comedian Paul Karenza back to St. Mary's as part of our Christmas Tree Festival. Those who attended his last performance here in 2015 will remember an excellent evening of good, clean, side-splitting comedy. He is a writer for many of the BBC's most popular comedy shows including Miranda and Not Going Out. This year Paul is bringing a few friends, including the folk-group 'Folk On' (who have also visited St. Mary's before) and a young comedian called Tom Elliott, and will be giving us an evening of comedy combined with the singing of our favourite carols. It is a format that Paul has been running successfully around the country for several years and we are very fortunate to have booked him amid stiff competition for the date.

This will be an excellent evening to bring friends along, and discounts are available for group bookings. The tickets will go on sale from 1 November through Eventbrite the Parish Office or by emailing They cost £10 per individual, or £30 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children (yes, it will be suitable to bring children) and if you can assemble a group of 10 one of your tickets will be free. All the comedians performing are part of a close-knit group of Christian Comedians who support one another.
