December saw the return of our much-loved, festive extravaganza; Christmas with the Stars at the Royal Albert Hall.
Christmas with the Stars
Conducted by Frank Renton and his very own Concert Brass, along with the trumpeters of the Scots Guards, Sydenham School Choir and the grand organ of the Royal Albert Hall, the evening was full of fun, surprises and festive cheer.
We had live performances from an array of stars including; Caroline Quentin, Ian Kelsey, The Overtones, Waterloo Road's Heather Peace, Emmerdale's Natalie Anderson and Tom Lister, Eastenders' Neil McDermott as well as Phaldut Sharma who performed a Christmas tap dance in our grand finale.
With an exclusive performance from award-winning film composer Patrick Doyle, along with his children, Patrick, Abigail and Nuala, it really was a fantastic start to our Christmas celebrations.
We are currently in the midst of preparations for this year's show so watch this space for an announcement of the date soon.

The Royal Albert Hall,
We are delighted to have the vocal talents of the Sydenham High School Choir joining us once again for Christmas with the Stars.
Last year the 300 strong choir, our biggest yet, was made up of puils, staff, parents and friends of the school. As the School celebrated their 125th Anniversary, they chose to raise money for 3 charities, one of which being Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
Through various activities they raised a truly incredible £10,000 which Head Teacher, Kathryn Pullen, along with school representatives Aysha Waheed and Paula Torren (pictured below) presented to Chief Executive, Cathy Gilman, on the night.
Their achievements over the past year have been truly inspirational and the money they raised made a vital contribution to our research into beating blood cancers.
We look forward to welcoming the Sydenham High School Choir once again this year.
