Cathedral concert-goers raise roof and funds for Cardinal Hume Centre

One of London’s largest charity carol concerts is to return to Westminster Cathedral this year, once again raising funds to help local young people and families overcome poverty and homelessness.

With all proceeds going to the Cardinal Hume Centre, the event on 13 December – organised by our corporate partners Landsec – the event will include a variety of yuletide readings from celebrities including singer Cerys Matthews, reality TV star Ollie Locke, and sports presenter and comedian Lloyd Griffith; as well as captivating musical recitals from the English Ensemble brass band, Cathedral Choir, and the Victoria Children’s Choir among others.

Doors will open from 6:15pm, with the carol concert taking place between 7pm and 8pm. Tickets are on sale for just £15, with those interested in attending being urged to book now to avoid disappointment. Concert-goers can continue the festivities afterwards by heading over to Victoria’s new food and drink quarter, Nova, for a special after-hours performance.

Patricia Marron, Senior Corporate Partnerships Officer at the Cardinal Hume Centre said: “Landsec’s annual concert at Westminster Cathedral – just down the road from the Cardinal Hume Centre – is without doubt one of the biggest highlights of the year. It’s a chance for all those living and working nearby to get into festive spirit and, at the same time, show their support for some of the most vulnerable and isolated people in our community. We are incredibly grateful to Landsec for organising a truly magical evening. I’d like to say a very special thanks to the talented musicians, singers and guest-readers, as well as all those who are coming along. Together, we can look forward to helping more and more people in need.”
