The Spandau Ballet star, who is the vice president of the charity, will be singing songs from his new Christmas album at what promises to be a very special festive evening.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, this popular annual event will also feature performances from the 140-strong Elmbridge Choir and Shooting Star Chase’s Family Choir, as well as a special guest speaker (to be announced), readings from one of the charity’s supported family members and a special Christmas video starring some of the children.

Taking place at St George’s College Chapel in Weybridge on Thursday December 15, with doors opening at 6.30pm, tickets are expected to sell fast.

“The carol concert is always a wonderful evening and bound to get even the biggest Scrooge in the mood for Christmas!” says Emma Watson, community fund-raiser at Shooting Star Chase, which has hospices in Guildford and Hampton. “The event conjures up a real spirit of community at an important time of year, with local residents, regular supporters and children and families cared for by the charity all joining together in a beautiful venue.”

The concert will be followed by a raffle and a wine reception – and will raise vital funds to make Christmas extra-special for children with life-limiting conditions, and their families, cared for by Shooting Star Chase.
