Christmas in Chorleywood
December 04, 2015

Time to air Chorleywood’s very own Christmas video again! First made in December 2015 and updated in 2016,  the film features an original Christmas song written and recorded specially for us by Mick Flinn

Some of the shops don’t exist any more and some of the people featured have moved on but many are still here! 

The song,  performed by members of 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

    I loved the whole video but my favourite was our own business man outside the bank, hasn’t he done well since he starred in BiLLY Liar
