4th December – A London Guide to Christmas Carols

Singing carols is what always reminds me of Christmas. Throughout school I always looked forward to our annual Carol Service at Guildford Cathedral, I love how haunting yet joyful carols can be. I feel upset that I am no longer a part of a choir but I still try to go to a local carol service each year so that I can get my fix.

So I thought I would put together a little list of carol services going on around London throughout December – some are ticketed and some are free, the ticketed ones tend to be for charity – even more of a reason to part with your cash, especially at christmas considering its a time of giving!

Sunday 6th December 7pm = Cadogan Hall – Sloane Square Choral Society – A night of Carols – Ticketed

Monday 7th December 6:30pm = St Bartholomew the Great – Smithfield – Ticketed (for charity) also the Military Wives’ Choir performing

Friday 11th December 7:30pm = Cadogan Hall – Goldsmiths Choral Union Carols for Choir and Audience – in support of Save the Children – FREE

Sunday 20th December and Tuesday 22nd December 6:30pm = Southwark Cathedral – The Cathedral Carol Services – FREE – get there early this is a very busy carol service!

Wednesday 23rd December = St Martin in the Fields – Trafalgar – Carols for Christmas by Candlelight – Ticketed (not cheap) but this is a spectacular carol service and something I would seriously recommend if your going with family.
