Emmerdale actor to give guest reading at lantern of life carol concert

Actor Mark Charnock, best known for his role as Marlon Dingle on ITV’s Emmerdale, will once again appear as a guest reader at Yorkshire Cancer Research’s Lantern of Life carol concert in Harrogate.

The well-loved actor, who has played the role of Marlon for the past 18 years, will join the Reverend Guy Donegan-Cross and St Aidan’s Church of England High School’s Girls’ Choir and Brass Group at the charity’s festive event.



The carol concert will take place this Friday, 5th December, at The Bandstand, Valley Gardens, Harrogate, from 6.15pm.

The concert is free of charge but the charity is offering those who attend the chance to light a lantern in memory or celebration of a loved one in return for a donation. They will then have the opportunity to take their lantern home. Mulled wine and mince pies will also be served.

Andy Pierce, Events Manager at Yorkshire Cancer Research, said: We’re delighted to be welcoming Mark Charnock back to our Lantern of Life carol concert.

It’s a perfect opportunity to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones in a very moving and magical way and we’re looking forward to bringing the community together at this very special time of year.
