Tania Bryer, co-chair of the Cancer Research UK Christmas carol concert committee, “This is one of the most spectacular of all the Christmas carol concerts in London, as well as being one of the most important fundraising events of the year for Cancer Research UK, having raised more than £2 million for the charity since it began’’
“There really is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than visiting St Paul’s Cathedral at Christmas and enjoying a range of magical performances from some of the UK’s best-loved actors, and performances from world-class musicians and singers, including St. Paul’s Cathedral Choir. All the money raised at this year’s carol concert will support vital research to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.”
A highlight in London’s Christmas social calendar, tickets to this year’s concert are available now, until 10th December, with prices starting from £10, going up to £125 for the best seats in the Cathedral. You can purchase tickets here.
