For one night only Leighton House Museum is host to a special Christmas event bringing some festive cheer to the former home of artist Leighton with Carols by Candlelight. This evening performance hosted by musician and broadcaster Sandy Burnett sees the studio at Leighton House filled with Christmas music from Georgian England and nineteenth-century Germany. Audience participation is encouraged and there's the chance to join in and sing a few of your favourite carols. This event is run by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in combination with their Twilight Tours at nearby 18 Stafford Terrace, where Edward Linley Sambourne, the Punch cartoonist, illustrator and photographer lived. Both are wonderfully atmospheric museums well suited to these special evening events to get you in the festive mood in the run up to Christmas.

 

About Leighton House Museum

Leighton House is one of the most opulent museums in London, and its small scale makes it easy enough to explore thoroughly in an afternoon. Located on the edge of Holland Park, this opulent 19th-century home of Lord Leighton is decorated with domed ceilings, fountains, and plenty of marble. More about Leighton House Museum
