Carols by Candlelight– Monday 1 December 2014


Monday 1 December, 7pm

We're celebrating the festive season in St Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge with our annual Carols by Candlelight. This wonderful evening will put you in the Christmas spirit with celebrity readers, special performances from two of London’s leading choirs and a generous helping of mulled wine and roasted chestnuts.

Last year our Carols by Candlelight event saw readings from Simon Callow CBE, Damian Lewis, Nigel Harman and Meera Syal plus a musical performances from Jonathan Ansell and the St Paul’s Cathedral choir. Keep checking this page for updates on who will be our special guests for 2014.

For guests wishing to continue the Christmas merriment, we host an intimate champagne supper in beautiful Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel. Here you’ll enjoy a champagne reception, delicious supper and the opportunity to bid in our luxury ‘auctionette’.
