Christmas choirs and concerts

All of our Christmas 2023 events have now finished. We'll be adding details of our Christmas 2024 events later in the year, so please check back closer to the time.

In the foreground of the image is a music stand holding an open music book which is in focus, while there is a choir of people visible out of focus in the background singing from open books.

Ring in the season with Christmas carols

Sip on mulled wine and warm up with us at a National Trust place decked out for Christmas. There’ll be plenty of mince pies for you to snack on as a brass band plays out the classics. Embrace the fading sunset with carol singing in the candlelight. Enjoy Tudor or Elizabethan caroling concerts at Lyveden in Northamptonshire, with festive programmes of music and family favourites. For mince pies, mulled wine and carol singing visit Sheffield Park and Garden in East Sussex, where you can sing the night away under the light of the giant Christmas tree. At Allan Bank in the Lake District, be serenaded by Harps North West, a local charity whose mission it is to spread newfound appreciation of the harp.
