Shepherd's Bush Christmas Stocking Kit OLIVER

From Shepherd's Bush, this is Oliver's Christmas Stocking.


"Good King Winceslas was our grandmother's favourite carol. Every Christmas Eve we moved from youngest to oldest to choose the carols we wanted to sing, and eventually every person in our family had his own special song. And always, last of all, our grandmother would make her choice. We all learned to love it as well - because she loved it and it was so dramatic - and we would attempt to join her in the singing. (Secretly, I always imagined myself to be the page bringing the 'flesh and wine'.) But one by one, we would each drop out as the verses went on and on, and we no longer remembered the words. By the end - only my Nana's voice could be heard valiant and strong and never missing even one word." - Tina Richards Herman, designer
