About the event

Mencap's Carols by Candlelight takes place in the oldest church in London; a beautiful setting for an evening of festivities.

The event is held at The Priory Church of St Bartholomew The Great, Smithfield, London, EC1 9DS.

Doors open for the event at 6pm, for a 6:30pm start.

Throughout the service you will enjoy carols from the English Baroque Choir and celebrity readings from the likes of Kathy Lette and Jules Robertson. Afterwards, we hope that you can stay and join us for canapés and drinks.
