We are delighted to return to St John’s Smith Square on December 8th for our annual celebration of Christmas. Don’t miss this “carol concert with bells on” (in the words of the Guardian), featuring settings by Vaughan Williams, John Tavener, Cecilia MacDowell, David Willcocks, John Rutter and many more. With classic carols, new favourites and plenty of audience participation, this is an annual highlight of the year for adults and children alike (recommended minimum age 6 years).

So said Classical Source of our performance of Ravel’s Daphnis & Chloe with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Chorus under the baton of Alain Atinoglu on the second night of the BBC Proms this summer.
