Join the stars to help save the UK’s historic churches

Get into the festive spirit with Bill Bryson, Huw Edwards and Michael Palin.

They headline the National Churches Trust’s Carol Concert at St James’s  church, Piccadilly, London on Wednesday 12 December 2018.

Joining the all-star line-up will be children from the Pimlico Musical Foundation Choir, a charity that provides a music education for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

All proceeds from the Carol Concert will go to support the work of the National Churches Trust, which in 2018 has provided over £1.1 million to help fund urgent repairs and maintenance work at churches and chapels throughout the UK.

Claire Walker, CEO of the National Churches Trust, said:

“Everyone is welcome at this special evening which celebrates both Christmas and our work saving historic churches and chapels at risk. We have a superb line up of some of the UK’s leading writers and broadcasters, Bill Bryson, Huw Edwards and Michael Palin, who together with the brilliant children of the Pimlico Musical Foundation will help us enter into the spirit of Christmas. Please join us in the wonderful surroundings of St James’s church, Piccadilly, designed and built by Sir Christopher Wren, right in the heart of London’s West End.”

The National Churches Trust Carol Concert is kindly supported by CCLA Investment Management Limited which manage investments for charities, religious organisations and the public sector.
