Shelter aims for UK’s largest Virtual Carol Concert

You are invited to ‘Hope, Home, Song’  which Shelter hope will be the UK’s largest carol concert. Tune in from the comfort of your own home at 7pm on Thursday 3 December

If you would like to join in you can register here:

The ‘Home Hope Song’ concert will be hosted in the candle-lit church of St Martin-in-the-Fields in London, where Shelter was founded in 1966. It will run for forty-five minutes, and be streamed via Shelter’s website. The service will be hosted by DJ and long-time Shelter supporter Edith Bowman.

Many Christmas traditions are unable to go ahead this year. But Shelter hopes that encouraging thousands of people and families to come together to create the UK’s biggest virtual carol concert can be a new moment of festive connection for the nation.

The stream will be interspersed with stories from those who’ve been helped by the charity, along with guest appearances from the likes of Julie Walters, Stephen Fry and Rob Rinder.

The concert is free to watch but any donations made will support Shelter’s work. And event sponsors Nationwide Building Society will match pledges up to £43k.
