THE final festive Merry Neet of the year will be held next month.

It will take place at The Gather, Ennerdale Bridge, and can also be joined online.

Lamplugh musicians and hosts Dave Camlin and Angie Power said: "Featuring Sing Owt! and Wild Chorus community choirs, the Merry Neet will involve a veritable yuletide feast of everyday creativity.

"Our theme for the evening is 'Light in the Darkness'. If people want to make a creative contribution to the evening's festivities they can interpret the theme any way you like - as a song, a poem, a story, a joke, a dance or anything else creative that takes your fancy."

The Merry Neet will take place from 7pm on December 3.

"It will be a 'room and Zoom' event to avoid any over-crowding in The Gather," said Dave.

"Some performers will be at The Gather, and everyone else can join us via Zoom. We'll project the Zoom meeting onto the venue's projection screen, and we'll have a live video link so that everyone can be part of the fun."

Performance slots are available - people can perform either at The Gather or by Zoom.
