Christmas Carol Concert

19th Christmas Carol Concert

Tuesday 11 December 2018

St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge and Jumeirah Carlton Tower

Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and the Christmas Carol Concert committee are delighted to announce that the 19th Christmas Carol Concert took place on Tuesday 11 December at St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge and the Jumeirah Carlton Tower and raised a fabulous £306,000.

What the event involved

This enchanting celebration of Christmas was held at St Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge with over 750 people enjoying beautiful music from ever popular carols and professional performances. The audience enjoyed festive readings from our celebrity guests; Tamsin Greig, Celia Imrie, and Alison Steadman as well as a performance from the fabulous Joe Stilgoe. 

Guests joined us afterwards within the beautiful surroundings of The Jumeirah Carlton Tower for a champagne and canapé reception.

Where the money raised will go

The 19th Christmas Carol Concert raised a fantastic £306,000 towards vital ECMO machinery at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). ECMO is a technique that allows babies and children with poor cardiac function or severe respiratory difficulties to have the function of their lungs or heart supported with a mechanical pump and artificial lung. These pieces of equipment are vital to support the recovery of children who are in need of specialised care.

2018 marked the 12th year that Trailfinders has sponsored our Christmas Carol Concert and we are so grateful for their support.
