One of my favourite things at Christmas time is listening to and singing along with Christmas carols. If this appeals to you too, then here’s a roundup of Carols By Candlelight and other carol concerts to enjoy this year!

Don’t miss the chance to have your say! We’re looking for parents to get involved and give their feedback on all aspects of family life. Find out more here.

For many people, a big part of Christmas are the classic Christmas carols like Deck the Halls, The First Noel and O Come All Ye Faithful.

Hearing them live, and getting to sing along too, is a joyful experience so we’ve rounded up some places where you can enjoy Christmas carols. Unless specified, these are virtual events so you can watch from the comfort of your home.
