At Le Manoir, we begin our festive celebrations with a series of Christmas carol concerts that take place at our neighbouring church, St Mary’s in Great Milton.  Our concerts are tradition for us now, as they have taken place for over 20 years. It marks the start of Christmas.

Our enchanting evening started with delicious canapés and a Laurent-Perrier champagne reception at Le Manoir followed by a torch lit walk to church to begin our carols. The church always looks so beautiful, lit by candles and filled with anticipation from us all waiting eagerly for the choir to sing.

Christ Church Choir began, their voices filled each corner of the church, their sound resonating throughout, capturing our attention and mesmerising us all with their captivating songs. They sang the classics, the ones that we all adore… Once in Royal David’s City, O little town of Bethlehem and O come all ye faithful to name but a few. Christ Church Choir even sang a 17th century French carol just for me. A thoughtful gesture and something that I will cherish. Their French was parfait.

After a wonderful performance, it was time to return to my beloved Le Manoir to feast on a menu fit for Kings and Queens! My 5 course menu was welcomed with open arms as each guest savoured and enjoyed each mouthful. I watched my team elegantly deliver each course and soon return to clear the empty plates and return with dishes filled with yet more exquisite delights!

Christmas celebrations at Le Manoir have begun, it’s time for us to feast, drink beautiful wine and be merry.

I hope to see you all soon!
