Sanctuary From Your Sofa presents Carols by Candlelight 2021

10 December 2021 - 18:00 to 20:00
Online

Our award-winning virtual event is back this Christmas for another fantastic festive special! Join us LIVE from 6pm (GMT) on 10 December as we head to Paccombe Farm, home to over 250 donkeys.

We'll be heading behind-the scenes, meeting the team and checking in on some of the farm's residents, including three adorable foals who were born into our care last spring.

Sadly, we're not able to invite visitors along to enjoy our Carols by Candlelight event this year, so we'll also be premiering a full-length virtual carol concert, performed and recorded at The Donkey Sanctuary Sidmouth.

You'll be able to watch the videos on this page or via our YouTube channel.

Ready to get into the Christmas spirit? Sit back, relax and enjoy a festive evening at the sanctuary from the comfort of your sofa.
