The blessing of the new corn and the offering of garden produce will be the key feature of this annual event. 

SKA LONDON is the pioneer in introducing the concept of the ‘Monti Fest’ in UK many years ago and long standing members will remember the events with nostalgia. SKA LONDON is a fully independent group founded in 1979 and is not associated with any other group for the purpose of the forthcoming Nativity celebrations. Any misleading invitations you receive from any other group whhich implies that SKA is any way associated or involved in their Nativity celebrations are inaccurate. There is only one SKA  and only one Nativity celebration. Please continue your support to SKA.

As this is a free event invitations have been sent to members in order to get an idea of the numbers to expect for catering purpose.  If you have not responded to the invitation from the Secretary please do so asap. SKA LONDON welcomes donations of any size, discrete or publicized to continue with the Feast of Nativity.
