With its wonderful architecture, warm acoustics, candlelit setting and stunning music from world-class ensembles and choirs, St Martin-in-the-Fields church offers some of the best Christmas carols in London.
Join a special carol service for the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal on 6 December. There’s also the annual A Norwegian Concert at Christmas, which celebrates the installation of the Trafalgar Square Christmas tree with a line-up of Norwegian music on 8 December.
Other highlights of the season include family-focused concerts on 2, 22 and 23 December, The Glory of Christmas with the Choir of Christ's College Cambridge on 14 December, Handel’s Messiah by Candlelight on 15 and 16 December, and Christmas with the English Chamber Choir on 16 December.
You’ll also find plenty of post-Christmas treats, with the Beethoven Moonlight Sonata by Candlelight on 28 December, a performance of all six Brandenburg Concertos by London Octave on 29 December, and A Ceremony of Carols by Candlelight on 30 December. Plus, kick-start 2017 with a performance of Baroque favourites at the New Year’s Day Extravaganza on 1 January.
Step in from the cold and don't forget to wear your best Christmas jumpers, Santa hats and reindeer antlers for these London Christmas concerts.
