Hosted by Macmillan Vice President, Martyn Lewis CBE, the soiree will include readings from a variety of Macmillan’s celebrity supporters, such as Vanessa Redgrave and Mary Beard, as well as music from some of the classical world’s most talented stars.
The perfect way to kick off the Christmas season, performers will include cellists Guy Johnston and Sheku Kanneh-Mason who have both been named BBC Young Musicians of the Year, in 2000 and 2016 respectively. Trumpeter Lucienne Renaudin-Vary will also perform for guests in the beautiful setting of the Guards Chapel, as well as the London Contemporary Orchestra and the Band of the Scots Guards.
The audience will also be invited to join the Royal Military Chapel Choir in singing festive carols.
The concert is followed by the opportunity to enjoy champagne and canapés in the Officers’ Mess after the evening’s entertainment.
