Join Barnardo’s 150th Christmas Carol Concert at Westminster Cathedral
Britain’s leading children’s charity is inviting the public to spread some Christmas cheer and help mark its 150th anniversary at a special carol concert at Westminster Cathedral.
Children and families are welcomed to take part in the ticketed evening event on 1 December at 7.15pm to reflect on the vital work of the charity’s founder, Thomas Barnardo, and how we can support even more disadvantaged children in the future.
Family favourites including Hark the Herald and Once in Royal David’s City will be among the carols sung, along with Christmas readings by Barnardo’s supporter, actor Robert Daws and a beneficiary from Barnardo’s services.
The congregation will also enjoy performances from a massed youth choir, made up of 400 students from schools across the country, who will sing alongside The Amici Singers and The Ensemble of Friends. Two choirs will also be directed by celebrated composer and chair of the Barnardo’s National Choral Competition, Dr Douglas Coombes MBE.
