What we do
Our thanks to everyone who attended, sang, read, played, dined and donated at this year's service. We're delighted to announce that next year we'll be holding our Carols by Candlelight in the historical St Paul's Cathedral, and we'll update these pages shortly with full details.
Tuesday, 17 December 2013, 7pm
St Paul’s Cathedral, London
Join us once again at the magical setting of St Paul’s Cathedral for our popular, annual Carols by Candlelight. This wonderful evening will put you in the Christmas spirit with complimentary gifts, seasonal readings from celebrities, festive carols and special musical performances. Carols in 2012 included readings from celebrities Sally Phillips, from Miranda, news reader Huw Edwards and Pam St Clement from EastEnders and a reflection from Frances Dean, one of our London fashion show models.
The magical atmosphere continues after the service as guests gather in the church courtyard for mulled wine, mince pies and hot roasted chestnuts. For those who wish to carry on the festivities we host a Champagne Supper. All money raised from this special event will help Breast Cancer Care continue to support over 500,000 people currently living with breast cancer in the UK.
'The service was lovely, intimate, warm, moving, funny, reflective ... a great occasion, which I will remember as one of the highlights of this xmas period.'
