Macmillan Cancer Support’s prestigious Guards Chapel Christmas Carol Concert took place last night (Thursday 3 December). Hosted by Macmillan Vice President Martyn Lewis CBE, the soiree included readings from Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Michael Fox (Downton Abbey) and Baroness Floella Benjamin.
World-renowned classical pianist Janina Fialkowska, rising baritone star Benjamin Appl and Lithuanian accordionist Martynas Levickis performed in the beautiful setting of the Guards Chapel and were supported by the London Contemporary Orchestra.
The evening is one of the most prestigious events in Macmillan’s annual calendar and all funds raised will go to help ensure that no one faces cancer alone.
