Join us for Carols for the City - a live streamed service
Bringing the City of London together to support those who need it most
Tuesday 8 December 2020 at 5.30pm
The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman William Russell, invites you to a very special Carol Service, organised by The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists and the VOCES8 Foundation.
It is a tradition of the City of London for many of its Livery Companies and businesses to hold Christmas Carol Services in early December. In 2020 this is not possible owing to the Covid-19 restrictions in force. The Lord Mayor has therefore decided to host, in conjunction with the VOCES8 Foundation and the Worshipful Company Information Technologists, a live-streamed service for the whole City. As this is to be available online, there is no limit to the number of people who can attend.
So come and join us for a unique carol service with traditional readings by a host of very distinguished readers (including HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex KG KCVO, Lord Mayor Alderman William Russell, the Lord Lieutenant of Greater London Sir Kenneth Olisa and the Governor of the Bank of England Andrew Bailey) and well known carols which you can sing, joining in at home. The singing will be led by VOCES8 who, along with Apollo5 and the children of a local school, will also perform some wonderful choral pieces. You can sing along at home. Organists are Anna Lapwood and Alderman Sir Andrew Parmley, Past Lord Mayor of the City of London.
All donations and the net proceeds of the tickets will go to our chosen charities:
40% The Lord Mayor’s Appeal
25% The VOCES8 Foundation
25% The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists’ Charity
10% The Friends of the City Churches
Because these charities in turn support a wide range of other charities, many will benefit from your generosity both in London and throughout the UK.
