Kerbside Carols, arranged by Emma Mansfield of Really Lovely Projects, invite people to sing in their streets through a live Facebook feed broadcast from Lostwithiel.
The singing sessions will go live at 8pm every Thursday in December until Christmas Eve. Each evening Emma will lead three carols with live accompaniment, followed by a short reading or poem to celebrate the season. The carols will be supported by pre-recorded backing tracks arranged for the average vocal range

The dream is that streets, towns and villages will ring with the sound of Christmas music and local voices.
So adorn your doorsteps, gardens, balconies or living rooms with light and amplification and sing along! Power up the speakers from your garden or front windows so you can be heard. The idea is for anyone anywhere to get involved, it will be broadcast from Lostwithiel but anyone anywhere can take part.
There will be live singalong rehearsals on the Kerbside carols Facebook page on Friday afternoons at 2pm and Sunday afternoons at 4pm.
BBC Radio Cornwall will be playing the singing sessions every week so if people aren’t on Facebook they can tune in instead.
