26th Anniversary Concert.
Join our celebrities and world class musicians for this popular feast of favourite carols, seasonal choral music and literary readings. Hear John Rutter’s new carol, which was composed especially to celebrate Follow the Stars 25th Anniversary Concert. Help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
As well as readings from our wonderful celebrity supporters, including Sally Phillips, Shaun Evans and Toby Jones*, you’ll be entertained by the sublime sounds of the Oxford Bach Soloists singing a variety of Christmas music.
Now in its 26th year, early booking is recommended for this Celebration of Christmas which has become Macmillan’s largest single fund-raising event in Oxfordshire. The evening is organised by volunteers to raise funds to support their work and with your generous support last year it's a delight to say that over £35,000 was raised to fund Macmillan’s important work. Thank you.
To ensure as many people as possible enjoy the concert, it will be livestreamed, free of charge, from Macmillan's JustGiving page until the end of the year. Share the link with your family and friends!
In the meantime, click on Macmillan's JustGiving page to watch the trailer, see the livestream and make a donation.
A full colour programme is included in your ticket price.
Gold seats include the VIP Champagne reception after the event.
*All appearances by celebrity supporters are subject to filming commitments.
If your plans change and you find yourself unable to use your tickets, Tickets Oxford will make best efforts to re-sell them to a waiting list, operated in line with demand.
Alternatively, you may choose to leave your tickets as a donation in support of this fundraising event.

The singing was extraordinary
