Singing for Syrians candlelit carols

Now in its 9th year, our Singing for Syrians Carol Concert will take place at St Bartholomew the Great, Farringdon.

There is something moving and powerful about London’s oldest surviving church hosting our Concert to support Syrian communities, who have also survived so much, including 12 years of conflict and, more recently, February’s earthquakes.

Look forward to a magical evening of carols, mince pies, middle-eastern food by Toum & Tahini, and most importantly, raising funds for vulnerable Syrian communities.

We are delighted to be joined for readings by:

  • Thomas Brodie-Sangster

(Actor – Love Actually, Nanny McPhee, The Maze Runner)

  • Peter Capaldi

(Actor – Doctor Who, The Thick of It, The Suicide Squad)

  • David Dimbleby
