doorstep carols

join us in your streets on the15th December at 6pm as we sing carols with Radio Suffolk


In 2020, Doorstep Carols was broadcast on 35 local radio stations and covered by BBC Breakfast News, Channel 5, The One Show, and BBC Midlands Today and in national press. It led to amazing scenes of participation from individual streets and neighbourhoods up and down the country and raised tens of thousands of pounds for local and national charities.

In December 2020, it was wonderful to see streets all across Suffolk packed with people singing their favourite Carols together. After an isolating year, it was even more special to join with one another in song. So many communities sent us photos and videos of what they got up to and this year we are inviting you to do the same. Any photographs or videos you take can be sent to to be shared on our social media and website, helping us to spread the joy of Doorstep Carols.

When? December 15th at 6-7pm

Where?  On your doorstep on public outdoor space

How?  Sing along with radio Suffolk

Join us on your doorsteps across the county this Christmas to sing carols together and spread some much-needed cheer. Carols on your doorstep started in Shropshire but spread far and wide. How amazing would it be to have the whole of Suffolk singing together? Tell all your friends and make sure you share the Facebook event on social media so we can get as many people as possible involved
