Follow the stars

Edward Williams Architects supports for the third year the magically festive Follow the Stars, Macmillan Cancer Support’s much-loved ‘Celebration of Christmas’ concert which this year goes online for the first time. There are Christmas readings from some of our best-loved actors and poets including Joanna Lumley, Stephen Fry, Jeremy Irons, Sinead Cusack, Max Irons, Toby Jones and Greg Wise.

From the magnificent setting of Christ Church Cathedral come glorious music and carols from The Oxford Bach choir and sublime performances from world-renowned baritones Roderick Williams and Christopher Purves. Alexander Armstrong sings a Christmas favourite while his son, New College chorister Paddy, offers an enchanting rendition of In the Bleak Midwinter. All of the celebrities generously donated their time to help Macmillan Cancer Support offer vital support at a time when funds are perilously low and their services are needed more than ever. 

The concert will premiere on Friday 11th December at 8pm and will remain online, free to stream, until 31st December. Visit Macmillan.org.uk/followthestars to pre-register and receive an invitation to watch, and here is a link to the trailer for a tase of it.
