Christmas with the Academy
St Martin in the Fields
FRIDAY DECEMBER 20TH 2019 - 6.00PM TO 11.00PM
London celebrates Christmas by turning its squares and streets into a wonderland of glittering colour and festive imagery, and continues the traditions which have cast a spell over the years to locals and visitors alike. From the magnificent lights in Oxford & Regent Street, to the stately & noble tree in Trafalgar Square gifted from the people of Oslo to the people of London, to the joyous Christmas concerts – none better with which to begin your Christmas celebrations than in Trafalgar Square at that architectural jewel which is St Martin in the Fields for a candlelit concert of festive favourites.
Your evening begins at the 5 star Hampshire Hotel just a few minutes’ walk away in Leicester Square, whose Penthouse on the 14th floor gives us a panoramic view over the capital to the London Eye and beyond. Pre-concert drinks and canapes will be yours to enjoy before being led the 4 minute walk across to St Martins to take up some of the best seats in the house for “Christmas with The Academy”. The Academy of St Martin in the Fields is one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras, renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world’s greatest orchestral music.
When we return to The Penthouse it will be set for a 2 course supper with coffee and mince pies, to round of a memorable evening.
We have secured some twin and double rooms for the night at this stately and opulent hotel, so you might like to make this a short break to London, relax at The Hampshire Hotel and enjoy more of what the capital has to offer at what some say is the most wonderful time of the year. ♪ ♩ ♪ ♩ ♪
