The Holst Singers return to St Paul’s Covent Garden for a feast of Christmas choral music in support of Breathing Matters. Featuring well-known, traditional carols, as well as more contemporary Christmas music, the concert promises to be an evening of wonderful festive entertainment, all for a terrific cause.
Breathing Matters (University College London Hospitals charity) supports research at ucl Respiratory. The proceeds from the concert will specifically fund research into Bronchiectasis and to raise awareness of this lung disease. The main symptom of Bronchiectasis is recurrent chest infections and patients with severe disease may also have problems with their breathing due to the chronic lung damage. Bronchiectasis affects an estimated 100,000 people in the UK and unfortunately there is no cure. At ucl Respiratory doctors and scientists are researching why people develop Bronchiectasis and how to best manage the chronic lung infections.
Tickets will be available from brown paper tickets until the evening of 8th December. Subject to availability, tickets will be on sale on the door from 6.45pm on the night of the concert (9th December).
