Following the success of our very first Carol Concert back in 2019, this winter we hope that we will be able to welcome you to the stunning St Mary Abbots Parish Church (Kensington Church Street, Kensington, London, W8 4LA) on Thursday 9th December from 6:30pm until approximately 7:30pm to celebrate the start of the festive season in support of Horatio’s Garden.
Two years ago, we hosted a spectacular seasonal occasion at St. Marylebone Parish Church, with everyone sharing just how much they enjoyed the evening. The opportunity to spend time in the cosy company of loved ones in such a beautiful place made the concert feel truly special and it was a pleasure to see generations coming together for the evening.
This year, recapturing that magic feels more worthwhile than ever.
The concert will begin at 6:30pm, when we will be joined by various special guests, and will last for approximately one hour.
Details regarding those joining us for the evening will be announced in due course, so please do return to this page for more information over the coming months.
Afterwards, all those who attend will have the chance to enjoy a delicious mince pie and festive glass of fizz. Both will be included in the price of your ticket and these will be available to buy later this year.
Whilst the present church of St Mary Abbots is only 120 years old, there has been a community of worship here in the heart of the capital for some 1000 years. This makes it one of the earliest churches to be established in Kensington and indeed it was the only one in existence in the area until the nineteenth century.
The present church was completed in its entirety in 1879 and illustrates Sir George Gilbert Scott’s work at its architectural best. It has been at the core of many lives since then and continues to be a thriving centre supporting the local community to this very day.
We are very much looking forward to seeing many of you in this historic place for a heart-warming evening this coming December!
