If you only go to one Christmas concert this year, then make it this one -- this really is the best of the season.

"Carols by Candlelight" will feature a fantastic selection of seasonal songs and Christmas classics, performed in an atmospheric candle-lit setting and full 18th-century costume.

There will be classics by Bach, Handel and Mozart, alongside a selection of traditional carols like "O Little Town of Bethlehem and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing".

There will also be some festive readings from the Bible and Charles Dickens, read by Bernard Cribbins.

The music will be performed by the Mozart Festival Orchestra and Chorus.

Performers:

The Mozart Festival Orchestra specialise in playing classics from the baroque era. They frequently perform in full 18th-century costume, bringing an evocative and elegant atmosphere to their concerts.
