Christmas in Chorleywood
December 04, 2015

Chorleywood’s very own Christmas video is being updated and you can take part. The video below, first made in December 2015,  features an original Christmas song written and recorded specially for us by Mick Flinn  

If you have a business that was not included in the original footage or are in a school, church, group or organisation who would like to be, just film a very short animated Christmassy greeting on your phone and send it to us by 12 December

To be considered for inclusion in the reworked video

  • Film yourselves on a smart phone for 5 to15 seconds. Be sure to use the camera on its side so it is in landscape format – NOT upright/portrait
  • You don’t need to sing along to the track
  • Email the clip to us at info@chorleywoodmagazine.co.uk by Monday 12 December*

We will include some of the best clips and should have the completed revised video on this website during the week leading up to Christmas.

 The song by Carol Kristian Theatre School was recorded in Mick’s studio and. CD sleeve artwork Snow on the Common taken from a painting by Mark Taylor

The CD of the song, Christmas in Chorleywood, together with two other original festive tracks performed by local bands The Nameless Three and The Caution Horses and Friends is available for £3 from Chorleywood Bookshop and Three Sons Greengrocer.  All profits go to Canine Partners.
