A Macmillan Christmas at St John's Smith Square

Join us

Celebrating with family and friends is what makes the Christmas season such a wonderful time of the year.

We hope you can join us for A Macmillan Christmas at St John’s Smith Square – our annual fundraising Christmas concert in London, which brims with festive cheer, well-loved carols, exceptional musical performances, and celebrity readings.

Come and help Macmillan raise money to support our friends and family living with cancer, all whilst kick starting your Christmas celebrations.

Now in its 31st year, our concert will be held on Friday 7th December at 7pm.

We will also have a new home: St John’s, Smith Square in Westminster.

St John’s, Smith Square is a beautiful baroque building with a fascinating history. Designed and built by Thomas Archer in 1728, it has survived fire, lightning, bomb plots, and the Blitz! It was first a flourishing church community of St John the Evangelist, now it ranks as a world-renowned concert venue. It dominates the centre of a quiet square, minutes form the hustle and bustle of the Houses of Parliament.

Our guests will be treated to the familiar stellar line-up of musical and literary treats, and this year we look forward to being entertained by The London Contemporary Orchestra, 18-year-old virtuoso recorder player Lucie Horsch - one of the most remarkable musical talents of her generation - and, fresh from his success this summer as Nerone in Agrippina at the Grange Festival, Italian counter-tenor Raffaele Pe.

We will be joined once again by our Vice President Sir Martyn Lewis CBE and Dame Diana Rigg, along with readings from Celia Imrie and James Dreyfus.
