Guards Chapel Christmas Carol Concert


Guards Chapel Christmas Carol Concert

Join us

Over £102,000 has been raised so far by Macmillan's annual Christmas Carol Concert on Thursday 8th December at the beautiful Guards Chapel in Wellington Barracks.

Over 600 people attended to hear readings from actress Vanessa Redgrave, scholar Mary Beard, BBC Radio 4 presenter Edward Stourton and actor Alex Macqueen.

They were also treated to exquisite performers from a range of talented musicians. Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Guy Johnston, current and former BBC Young Musicians of the year, performed an outstanding duet of Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Cellos in G minor. Jaymee Coonjobeeharry performed the Flight of the Bumblebee on piccolo with trumpeter Lucienne Renaudin-Vary giving a show-stopping rendition of The Christmas Song.

Dame Felicity Lott and the Royal Military Chapel led us in the carols with the Band of the Scots Guards and the London Contemporary Orchestra providing the musical accompaniment.

Macmillan’s Vice-President Sir Martyn Lewis CBE hosted the evening and afterwards guests enjoyed a Champagne and canape reception at the Officers’ Mess.

Next year will be our 30th anniversary of the concert and we want to make a big celebration of it. If you would like to help support us, or would like to enquire about tickets, please do get in touch using the details below.
