Gospel Carols by Candlelight in Covent Garden
Oct 22, 2018
In this special concert on the 17th and 18th December you’ll be serenaded with traditional Gospel and festive songs by the renowned and award winning IDMC Gospel Choir, while also getting to sing your favourite carols too!
When the choir make their entrance against the stunning backdrop of St Paul’s Church, we guarantee you’ll be covered in goosebumps. The atmosphere in this cosy and candlelit venue is enchanting and the perfect place to get you ready for Christmas. St Paul’s Church also has a beautiful outside space where we’ll be serving you a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie as part of the experience when you arrive. If this isn’t enough to get you feeling excited, then just wait till you walk around Covent Garden’s markets and streets, sparkling with their famous festive lights.
