What you need to know
Thank you for helping to organise your street or community in Doorstep Carols 2021. With your help, we'll get the whole nation singing together!
Let your neighbours know the time and date (Wednesday, December 15th, 6pm) & invite them to download the words and sing or play along to your local radio station or listen via BBC Sounds.
Find our downloadable invitation to print off and give to neighbours, or share on social media here:
OR, there's a full project resource pack here, including invitations, imagery and logo, flyers for social media channels, websites etc
What'sApp groups are a great way to get your neighbours involved. Why not organise a street party? Go to town with fairy lights, firepits or amps on the village green?!
⭐If your local radio station is not yet listed here contact them to make sure they know you're keen!
HELP SPREAD THE WORD
You can play a huge role in making this a success!You could share our poster with a community social media group, email it to your contacts, stick it on your local noticeboard, ask your local schools to share it, or encourage friends & neighbours to display it in their front windows.
Send us videos to let us know you're joining in, so we can use them on social media to help encourage more people to sing. The best videos could WIN a street performer to lead your street!

Donations are optional, but it would be great if we could raise money for good causes whilst we sing! Have a look at some of the partner charities we're working with on our charities page. You could arrange bucket donations in your street, or set up a Just Giving page in your area for these or your own local good cause.
In the week of December 15th - send out reminders to your neighbours so no-one forgets to join in!
On THe NIGHT!
