Christmas with the Philharmonia

Celebrate Christmas with the Philharmonia Orchestra.

Bring friends and family together at one of our Christmas concerts – join us at Royal Festival Hall to enjoy seasonal favourites and sing carols with the Bach Choir at 3pm on Sunday 10 December, or with Sir Tony Robinson and Southend Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs at 7.30pm on Thursday 14 December.

Spread the message of goodwill by sending our Christmas card video, a new wind quintet arrangement of Angels We Have Heard on High recorded at Brasserie Zédel (available from 1 December).

Share your love of music with young people around the UK by supporting our Creative Learning projects in the Big Give #ChristmasChallenge17. Your generosity will enable us to give world-class musical opportunities to thousands of young people around the UK, from primary school children to the next generation of composers.

Whether you’re with us in the concert hall, watching online, or pledging your support, we wish you a very merry Christmas.
