Carols in the City, in collaboration with Marie Curie Cancer Care, returns to Southwark Cathedral for the eight year in succession for an evening of festive fun and fund raising for a noble cause. Expect an array of musical acts, celebrity readings and, for those who are willing to pay a little extra, a mulled wine and mince pie reception afterwards. The perfect occasion in which to throw yourself into the Christmas spirit. If you're planning on visiting from out of London, take a look at our hotels near Southwark Cathedral.
