Singing for Syrians 2017 - London flagship carol service


Dec 12 2017 18:00 - 19:00


Join us for Hands Up's flagship Singing for Syrians' carol service at St Margaret's, Westminster on Tuesday 12th December!

It will be unlike any other carol service in London this year... there’ll be a star-studded array of readers and soloists. This year our stellar cast of readers will include Alexander Armstrong, Julie Christie, Colin Thubron, Martin Jarvis, Samuel West and Sophie Winkleman - it's not one to be missed!

So spread the word and bring your friends so we can all sing a carol or three and raise the roof for aid to Syria.

A note on the wider Singing for Syrians campaign:

Singing for Syrians is a UK-wide campaign run by the Hands Up Foundation which encourages individuals, bands, choirs, churches and cathedrals to hold their own carol concert, band night or musical fandango and this one is ours! The doors of these concerts are open to everyone, so ask your friends and ask them to ask theirs too.

It is easy to feel helpless and hopeless in the face of Syria's increasingly brutal and long-lasting conflict, but we all have the power to do something. Singing for Syrians is a positive and uplifting way to help those in need. Please join us to raise the roof for the projects Hands Up funds in and around Syria. More detail on these can be found on our website.

The suggested donations for tickets are in the panel on the right.

A note on refunds

If you have donated money for a ticket and find that you are unable to attend, we'll miss you, but we understand. We'll happily provide a full refund up until 7pm on Tuesday 5th December. All donated money will be going towards the projects we fund.


The Hands Up Foundation is a young and innovative charity which was set up by four British friends. Inspired by our time in Damascus, we want to remind our friends in Syria that they have not been forgotten. Check here for any of our events.
