The Lord Mayor’s Annual Christmas Carol Concert will take place on Sunday 18 December in the Main Hall of Oxford Town Hall from 2.30pm to 4pm.

Tickets will go on sale on Monday 5 December from the Cards for Good Causes shop, located in the Long Room at Oxford Town Hall. Tickets are £2 each and all proceeds will be donated to the Lord Mayor’s chosen charities: Crisis Skylight, Quest for Learning and Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.

This year’s programme will feature the Oxfordshire County Youth Choir supported by the Witney Youth Choir, the Oxfordshire Young Singers, and Oxford City Council’s own City Chambers Choir. The Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra, conducted by John Traill, will provide musical accompaniment along with Harry Baigent on the famous Father Willis organ.

The Lord Mayor of Oxford, Councillor Mohammed Altaf-Khan, said: “The Town Hall is a wonderful place to hold this event. It will be great fun for friends and families to join together and sing their favourite carols along with the orchestra. I am really looking forward to the carol concert and it will be my great pleasure to welcome guests to the event.”

The Christmas Carol Concert is an Oxford tradition and always proves very popular with many people coming year after year as the perfect way to start celebrating the festive season. This is one of the biggest fundraising events of the year for the Lord Mayor’s charities. Guests are asked to be seated by 2.15pm for a prompt start.
