Join us for a feast of carols, seasonal choral music and literary readings from our celebrity guests Roger Allam, Shaun Evans, Patricia Hodge and Sally Phillips.*

This uplifting event promises to get you into the festive spirit and be a memorable start to your Christmas season. We recommend early booking.

To ensure you have a fantastic evening, as well as our wonderful celebrity readers, we are delighted to welcome back award winning musical director Tom Hammond-Davies who will conduct the Oxford Bach Soloists and Steven Grahl who will play the organ.  Amongst the flickering candles, a guest chorister from Christ Church Cathedral choir will bring you the spine tingling opening notes of Once in Royal David’s City and ticket holders will be entertained as they arrive in the quad by the Magdalen College School Brass Ensemble.

Now in its 23rd year, A Celebration of Christmas has become Macmillan’s largest single fund-raising event in Oxfordshire.  The evening is organised by volunteers to raise funds to support their work locally and with your generous support last year we raised over £44,000 towards the cost of a local Macmillan nurse. The total cost of providing a full-time nurse for one year is £53,000, we continue to work towards this goal and look forward to seeing you for another wonderful evening on 6th December.

The event will be followed by a VIP Champagne Reception, tickets for which are included with gold seats, but can be purchased by other ticket holders separately on the booking site. Please note, tickets for the VIP Reception are now SOLD OUT.

Professional Photographs and film may be taken during this event. By attending the event you are consenting to the subsequent use of photographs or film of you in any printed or online media for editorial or promotion purposes by “A Celebration of Christmas”, their affiliates and sponsors.

*performance commitments permitting​

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with no interval
