Carols by Candlelight returns for its 29th year. It takes place in the beautiful St Paul's Church in Knightsbridge.

Help us fund more cancer professionals and support services in London by coming along to the 29th Macmillan ‘Carols by Candlelight’ service, which is being held at St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge on Thursday 12th December at 7.30pm.

Christmas can be a challenging time for anyone who has been affected by cancer, but this magical event promises to get everyone into the festive spirit. Sky News Correspondent Alistair Bunkall will present a traditional service, guiding guests through a programme of much-loved carols and seasonal songs with ample opportunity to sing along. There will also be readings from stars of stage and screen, including actress Samantha Bond and Sarah Hewson from Sky News. Carols will be performed by award-winning choir Vox Cordis.

After the concert, drinks and delicious mini mince pies will be served outside the church.

Doors open at 7pm and the concert starts at 7.30pm. Why not reach out to a friend and bring them with you?

Funds raised from this event will make a real impact on the growing number of people in London who need our help. Every day over 90 Londoners find out they have cancer, and we rely on public donations to support each and every one.
