Film and TV stars come together for carol concert at St. Paul’s for Cancer Research UK

We’re always more than content at Critical Popcorn to share news of a great charity bringing people together to raise life-saving funds and Cancer Research UK are set to bring together world-famous singers, musicians and actors for an evening of festive celebration on Tuesday 10 December at the iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral.

The concert will feature seasonal readings by Emily Watson OBE, Luke Evans, Helen George and Dominic West, and exclusive performances from St Paul’s Cathedral Choir conducted by Andrew Carwood, The Band of the Welsh Guard, and vocal performances from Sophie Bevan MBE soprano, Peter Auty tenor, Alan Opie OBE baritone and Matthew Rose bass. 

Tania Bryer, co-chair of the Cancer Research UK Christmas carol concert committee, said:

“This is one of the most spectacular of all the Christmas carol concerts in London, as well as being one of the most important fundraising events of the year for Cancer Research UK, having raised more than £2 million for the charity since it began. There really is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than visiting St Paul’s Cathedral at Christmas and enjoying a range of magical performances from some of the UK’s best-loved actors, and performances from world-class musicians and singers, including St. Paul’s Cathedral Choir.  All the money raised at this year’s carol concert will support vital research to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.”

Tickets to this year’s concert are available now, until 10th December, with prices starting from £10, going up to £125 for the best seats in the Cathedral. For more information on the event, please visit https://crukcarolconcert2019.eventbrite.co.uk.
