In 2021 we will be performing at a new venue: Kings Cross, Granary Square, London N1C 4AB

 

You can find Granary Square on this map of the Kings Cross estate - its the first and biggest square you reach when walking North from the underground or Kings Cross/St Pancras rail stations, you can't miss it!

 

Kings Cross is one of the most accessible locations in London to reach by public transport, with excellent rail, underground and bus links. Plan your journey at tfl.gov.uk - the nearest station is Kings Cross St Pancras.

Performer Information

What about Covid-19?

We will take all reasonable precautions to minimise infection risk. We will conduct a full event risk assessment, using the latest guidance and scientific data. This will be shared with participants and enforced by the organisers. Our primary control measure is that the event is outside in the open air, for maximum ventilation.

 

Sheet music:

We use the "New Christmas Praise" carol books for most of our carols.

We will provide all of the music for you on the day, but if you'd like to practice the music in advance, the carol books can be purchased from any of the following suppliers:

We will perform a few other songs that are not in the book - sadly we cannot share these with you in advance, for copyright reasons.
