We would love you to join us at St. Marylebone Parish Church on Monday 2nd December to celebrate the start of the festive season with carols, wine and mince pies in support of Horatio’s Garden.
This special concert will begin at 6:30pm and will feature beautiful music from Margaret Keys and heart-warming readings from a variety of unmissable guest speakers, including actors Tony Gardner and Jemma Redgrave.
Musician and Reader Biographies
Tony is an actor. He qualified as a doctor from Guy’s Hospital in 1987 and started performing comedy soon after with Phil Hammond in the award-winning medical comedy duo Struck Off and Die.
His television credits include Last Tango in Halifax, Lead Balloon, My Parents are Aliens, Fresh Meat, Bluestone 42 and The Thick of It.
Margaret is a chart topping and award winning Classical soprano from Northern Ireland. She has performed extensively throughout the world and has performed with some of the world’s leading orchestras and performers.
She made her debut in New York’s Carnegie Hall in December 2016 and has also performed at the annual Royal Christmas Carol Concert at St James’ Palace, London in the presence of members of the Royal family. Her highly anticipated new album ‘The Gift of Music’ was released in the summer of 2018. The album topped the UK Classical Charts.
With a history stretching back nearly 900 years, St. Marylebone Parish Church is a truly remarkable place with an incredible atmosphere. Today it continues to be recognised for its considerable civic, cultural and economic contribution to the local community, just as it has been for generations.
Coincidentally, the parish is also home to The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Bolsover Street, the sister establishment to the site at Stanmore where our fifth Horatio’s Garden will soon be being brought to life in 2020.
With this in mind, there really is no better way for you to start your seasonal celebrations!
The concert will last for approximately one hour and afterwards all those who attend will have the chance to enjoy a delicious mince pie and festive glass of fizz. Both are included in the price of your ticket, which costs £25. There is a reduced price of £15 for under 25s.
