Get ready for a magical night of Christmas carols at Westminster Abbey as The Princess of Wales returns with a special carol service on Friday 8th December.
This year, the service will be a moment to thank all those who work to support babies, young children, and families in our communities across the UK and a celebration of the golden opportunity that the birth of a new baby brings.
The service which has been spearheaded by The Princess, and supported by The Royal Foundation, is a moment to bring people together at Christmas time and recognize those who have gone above and beyond to help others throughout the year. Linked to Her Royal Highness’ Shaping Us campaign, the service will showcase the hope of new life and why it is so important to build supportive, nurturing worlds around children and the adults in their lives.
With both traditional and modern elements to include people of all faiths and none, the service will see the Westminster Abbey choir perform some of the nation’s favourite carols alongside musical performances including Beverly Knight, Adam Lambert, Jacob Collier, Freya Ridings, and James Bay.
In addition to the Westminster Abbey Service, twelve community carol services will be taking place across the UK, hosted by Lord-Lieutenants, and supported by The Royal Foundation.
The Royal Christmas Carol Service at Westminster Abbey will air on ITV on Christmas Eve as it has done in previous years.
