Carols for ShelterJoin celebrity readers Simon Callow and Brenda Blethyn, special guests, choirs and hundreds of fellow Shelter supporters for an annual evening of Christmas song and celebration. Held in the historic St-Martin-in-the-Fields Church, it's a chance to mark the start of the festive season while also helping those facing bad housing and homelessness.

 

About St Martin-in-the-Fields

This historic church of St Martin-in-the-Fields overlooking Trafalgar Square was built in 1726 and is the best known work of Scottish architect James Gibbs whose first public building was St Mary-le-Strand. The Palladian features of St Martin-in-the-Fields reveal the influence of Gibbs' training under the leading Roman architect of the time, Carlo Fontana. More about St Martin-in-the-Fields
