A Celebration of Christmas

A Celebration of Christmas

Now in its 21st year, this celebrity carol concert, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and fondly referred to as the event that starts the Christmas Season, will again be held in the atmospheric splendor of Christ Church Cathedral.

Join us for an uplifting musical evening featuring festive music and readings from the world class Blenheim Singers conducted by Tom Hammond-Davies, a guest Chorister from New College Oxford and a star-studded list of celebrity readers* including Jeremy Irons, Prue Leith, Christopher Staines and Joanna Trollope.

A Celebration of Christmas is run entirely by volunteers to raise funds to support a Macmillan nurse in Oxfordshire.

We look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be an unforgettable evening.  Early booking is recommended.

… there’s nothing like singing carols at the top of your voice, as part of a large congregation, to immerse you in that warm, Christmas glow!
