The Living Advent CalendarI
Have you heard of the Henley on Thames Living Advent Calendar? I only found out about it the other day and just had to share. So, imagine your standard advent calendar, a small piece of cardboard in the shape of a house with doors that you open and behind each door a surprise (chocolate). Well image a real life size version of this (minus the chocolate), where actual doors/windows open every day. But instead of just a picture or a piece of chocolate there is a 30 minute performance ranging from carols and dancing to poetry and book excerpts.
Such a brilliant idea!
It is a collaborative project between the Henley Living Advent Calendar trust, the Henley Partnership and Henley Town Council. They bring together nearly 100 local businesses and organisations to provide the entertainment behind each door.
Henley on Thames is a gorgeous place to visit any time of year but with this happening I think we'll be visiting again very soon! The doors are opened every evening from the 1st December straight through to the 24th at 6.15pm prompt. For more information and to see where they will each evening click here.
