Rainbow Trust is holding its annual Carol Concert at the beautiful St. Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge on Thursday 3 December to raise money to support more families caring for a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.
Listed as one of London’s top carol concerts in 2014 (The Resident), this much-loved event is a magical candlelit evening and a wonderful way to celebrate the start of the festive season. Guests will enjoy congregational hymns and a range of carefully selected festive readings and musical performances, including the welcome return of the Cheam School Chapel Choir singing traditional carols. Also performing will be Opera Holland Park, singing an excerpt from Will Todd’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Singing Cabbies and brass quartet Brass Routes.
This year Rainbow Trust is pleased to welcome a number of celebrity guests including presenter and actor Nicholas Parsons CBE; actor, writer and comedienne Maureen Lipman CBE; journalist Sarah Montague, who hosts Today on BBC Radio 4; actor Clare Skinner from popular sitcom Outnumbered and actor Trystan Gravelle, known for his role as Victor Colleano in Mr Selfridge.
The most special performance of them all, however, will come from Jacob Phillips, whose family is currently being supported by a Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker.
Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Rainbow Trust, Emma Haines, says:
“Our annual Carol Concert is one of our most admired and popular events and we are really looking forward to welcoming our guests. Christmas can often be one of the hardest times of the year for the families we support. This event will get people into the festive spirit while fundraising for a worthy cause, meaning our Family Support Workers can help those families have the best Christmas possible.”
Guests are invited from 6.00pm to enjoy mulled wine and mince pies before the concert begins at 6.45pm.
Tickets cost £40 each and can be booked online here, or by calling our Events team directly on 01372 220031.
