Guards Chapel Christmas Carol Concert


Guards Chapel Christmas Carol Concert

Join us

The perfect start to the festive season. Enjoy spectacular performances from internationally acclaimed artists in the beautiful setting of Wellington Barracks.

Join the military Chapel choir in traditional carols, and hear regimental bands in all their glory.

The concert is followed by the opportunity to enjoy champagne and canapés in the Officers’ Mess after the evening’s entertainment. This is a very special event for Macmillan and an all-time favourite for many of our supporters.

In 2015, guests were treated to performances from Lithuanian virtuoso accordionist Martynas Levickis, international pianist Janina Fialkowska, baritone Benjamin Appl and the London Contemporary Orchestra, with readings from Dame Diana Rigg, Baroness Floella Benjamin OBE DL, Jason Isaacs and Downton Abby’s Michael Fox.

A fantastic £120,000 was raised for people affected by cancer.
