Walpole is delighted to be celebrating Christmas with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, who will perform their Christmas Concert. Enjoy traditional carols and Christmas music selected by the Walpole team with a glass of Fortnum & Mason Mulled Wine and Christmas Petit Fours mince pies, and help support this exceptional orchestra.
Programme includes Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, the London Philharmonic Orchestra Choir singing Silent Night and more.
Performance running time: 20 mins
This is a ticketed event, supported by Fortnum & Mason, where all profits will go towards supporting the work and performances of the London Philharmonic Orchestra to help fund their work and artists through a very challenging time for live performance.
Christmas Concert and Fortnum & Mason Festive Treats ticket: £35 (Available until Tuesday 8th December) This ticket includes access to the Walpole Digital Social Christmas Concert, plus the wonderfully wintery taste of Fortnum's Mulled Wine and Mince Pies. Included in your Festive Treats Ticket will be a half bottle of Fortnum’s Claret, Mulled Wine Spice Bags, and a box of Christmas Petit Fours Mince Pies, to enjoy whilst watching the carols, and to thank you for your generosity in supporting the concert.
The Fortnum’s famous mulled wine bags are packed with cinnamon, orange peel, all-spice and cloves, and are perfectly paired with our Claret, which adds bursts of cassis fruit. Warm both in a pan, stir and enjoy with our small-but-superlative mince pies. Containing cognac-infused mincemeat, vine-ripened fruits and subtle spices, all encased in hand-crafted, all-butter short crust pastry, they are the perfect accompaniment to your warm mulled wine whilst watching the Carol Service for such a worthy cause.
BYO Christmas Concert Ticket: £20 This ticket will give you access to the Walpole Digital Social Christmas Concert.
For those who would like to sing along at home, please find the words to our first carol, Silent Night, below:
Silent night, holy night. All is calm, all is bright. Round yon virgin mother and child, Holy infant so tender and mild; Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, holy night. Shepherds first saw the sight. Glories stream from heaven afar; Heavenly hosts sings alleluia. Christ the saviour is born, Christ the saviour is born.
Silent night, holy night. Son of God, love’s pure light; Radiance beams from thy holy face, With the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord at thy birth, Jesus, Lord at thy birth.
