Have your say

GET IN tune with the festive spirit and take part in the YEP’s great new Song for Christmas competition.

We are asking schools, choirs and individuals to send in a video clip of them singing a Yuletide song.

And there will be a £50 voucher for White Rose Shopping Centre for the song we judge to be the best Christmas cracker.

We will feature entries on our website so you can enjoy the performance vying for the top spot.

So go on, sing your heart out this Christmas and make it extra special.

Nicola Furbisher, YEP editor, said: “Sharing a Christmas song or carol with friends and family is one of the best ways to get into the festive spirit. Send us your recording and help spread the joy of Christmas in this great competition.”

To take part send a clip to by December 19 and the winner will be announced between Christmas and New Year.

Include your name, age and a contact number.

If you are under 18 please make sure you have parental permission to enter and include contact details for your parent or guardian. Schools please ensure that all children on the video have permission to be featured.

Francesca Simpson, marketing manager at White Rose Shopping Centre, said: “You can really hit the right note at White Rose this Christmas with a host of great retailers under one roof as well as free parking and late night shopping and so we are delighted to offer a prize for this festive competition. We look forward to hearing all the wonderful songs that are sent in.”
