The Lord Mayor of Oxford’s Annual Christmas Carol Concert

Published: Friday, 24th November 2017

Tickets are now on sale for The Lord Mayor’s Annual Christmas Carol Concert, which will be taking place on Sunday 17 December at Oxford Town Hall.

The annual Christmas Carol Concert is a wonderful tradition and has become a highlight of Oxford’s festive calendar. People return year upon year to experience the sights of the building’s grand Main Hall at Christmas time.

This year the programme will feature the Oxfordshire County Youth Choir, Oxfordshire Young Singers, singers from the City Chambers Choir and more. As usual, many of the audience carols will be accompanied by the fabulous Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra conducted by John Traill and the famous Father Willis organ.

The Lord Mayor of Oxford, Councillor Jean Fooks, said: “The annual Carol concert in the Town Hall is always a splendid occasion. This year we have the performance interpreted in British Sign Language courtesy of the Handy Voices Singing Choir to make it even more special; do come and sing along with everybody else to raise the Town Hall roof for good causes.”

Tickets cost £2.50 each and can be purchased from the Cards for Good Causes shop located in the Long Room, Oxford Town Hall. Opening times are Monday to Saturday 10am until 4pm.

Tickets sales and donations from the concert will be donated to the Lord Mayor’s chosen charities: Mayday Trust, Response Giving and Wolvercote Young People’s Club. As one of the biggest fundraising events of the civic year we ask that you give what you can this festive season.

The concert starts at 2.30pm and will finish at 4pm. Guests are asked to be seated by 2.15pm.
