The season gets thoroughly jolly with the sound of Christmas carols in Trafalgar Square during December.
Throughout the build-up to Christmas, more than 50 carol groups each sing for an hour beneath the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square to raise funds for voluntary or charitable organisations. Resembling something of a winter wonderland with the world-famous Christmas tree in place (an annual gift from Norway since 1947), the scene is set for an atmospheric recital of classics during these Christmas carol concerts in Trafalgar Square.
From Deck the Halls and Good King Wenceslas to Ding Dong Merrily on High and The Holly and the Ivy, various tuneful groups sing to raise much needed cash for charity.
With warming refreshments to be found nearby, all the ingredients are in place for the perfect countdown to Christmas.
