The world-renowned Tabernacle Choir, voted one of the top ten choirs in the world, is celebrating 20 years of Christmas music this year. Several of the Christmas specials will be broadcast by London Live, London’s independent television station, featuring guests including Alfie Boe, Hugh Bonneville, John Rhys-Davies, and Jane Seymour. Programmes will be broadcast throughout the season including Christmas morning at 11:30am.

Last Christmas, twenty-six community radio stations around the United Kingdom broadcast the Tabernacle Choir’s Christmas Specials to local audiences. Many of the stations will be playing the Christmas Specials again following successful broadcasts last year. Dean Tucker from Future Radio stated, ‘We are interested in the (Christmas) specials; they worked brilliantly last year.’ They will be playing the Christmas programmes from 21st to 23rd December at 3pm.

For more than nine decades, nearly the lifetime of radio, the Tabernacle Choir has presented a weekly programme, Music & the Spoken Word, giving voice to peace, hope and inspiration. The programme is broadcast each Sunday by Beverley FM in Hull and Shoreline FM in Romney Marsh to an increasingly new audience. London Live (Freeview 8, Sky 117, Virgin 159 and YouView 8) broadcasts to up to 3 million viewers in the London area and has been airing the weekly show each Sunday at 5.30pm since October, bringing this uplifting programme to many new viewers.

In 2022, the Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra from Temple Square will complete a Heritage tour of Europe including dates in Edinburgh and Cardiff from 1st to 6th July. Further details and tickets can be obtained from
