Carols by Candlelight at the Royal Albert Hall
2 days - Hotel & Ticket package
Price from £119.95 per person*
Departs 16th Dec 2017
Single person supplement : £60.00 per person
This Christmas weekend treat will surely tick all the boxes with an exquisite concert of carols and seasonal classics, plus an overnight stay in the capital.
The concert will be performed at the Royal Albert Hall by the Mozart Festival Chorus and the Mozart Festival Orchestra, and will be staged by candlelight in full 18th–century period costume. The 2017 programme of music has not yet been published, but last year's concertgoers enjoyed evocative pieces including Handel's Zadok the Priest and the Christmas sequence from Messiah, excerpts from Corelli's Christmas Concerto, Mozart's Laudate Dominum, and Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. There will also be readings from Dickens, a special guest celebrity, and of course there will be lots of carols for everyone to sing.

Saturday Travel to London and check in at your hotel. Hotel check–ins are normally from between 3pm and 4pm, but if you arrive before your room is ready and want to simply drop your bags off, you will be able to leave your luggage with the hotel's concierge and complete the check–in formalities later on.
