Home-Start UK is delighted to announce the details of our annual carol concerts in aid of the Snowflake Appeal for Vulnerable Children.

We will be holding carol concerts in both London and Belfast and we would love for you to join us for a wonderful evening, which will also support our life-changing work.

Our sincere thanks go to Investec Wealth and Investment who have so generously sponsored these events again for 2016.

London carol concert

The London carol concert will take place on Thursday 8 December in the historic Priory Church of St. Bartholomew The Great. This stunning venue is London’s oldest surviving church, and was established in 1123. It is certain to be a magical evening.

There will be seasonal hymns and readings from our celebrity readers, and afterwards we invite all our guests to join us for a full and festive reception at the splendid Haberdashers’ Hall, just a short walk away.

Please arrive at 6pm, the concert will begin at 6.30pm.

Tickets have remained at £45 per person again this year and you can book your place today by clicking here or by sending a cheque to Home-Start UK, The Crescent, King Street, Leicester, LE1 6RX. All the money raised at this event will support Home-Start UK's work.

Your payment will be acknowledged and your name added to the entry list at the church automatically. Please note, that to reduce admin costs, we will not be sending printed tickets this year.

Belfast carol concert

The Northern Ireland carol concert will take place on the 14 December at the beautiful St. Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast.

Everyone is welcome to attend this superb evening of hymns and readings, there is no entry fee and no need to book your place. After the concert is over, please stay with us for seasonal mince pies, mulled wine and hot drinks.

Please arrive at 6pm, the concert will begin at 6.30pm.

We hope you will enjoy our annual celebration of the Home-Start network in Northern Ireland and any donation you are able to make to the retiring collection will go directly to support this work.

If you have any queries about either event please contact [email protected]. We wish you all a very merry Christmas!
