On behalf of the Alice Martineau Appeal Committee, we are delighted to announce that this year’s Carols by Candlelight service and Christmas party will be taking place on Thursday 14 December at St. Luke’s Church in Chelsea.

Buy your tickets

It is with great regret that, due to the risk of cross-infection, we cannot invite people with cystic fibrosis to attend this event.

Winchester College Chapel Choir will once again bring St Luke’s, Chelsea to life with their breath-taking renditions of your favourite carols. As always, they will be joined by a host of celebrity readers.

Festivities will continue after the carols with mulled wine and canapés at our annual Christmas party, which will take place in the delightful setting of The Chelsea Gardener, Sydney Street.

The Alice Martineau Appeal

Alice died from cystic fibrosis (CF) in 2003 aged 30, having achieved her ambition of signing a record contract with Sony BMG. The release of her album Daydreams in November 2002, and a BBC documentary about the nature of her illness and her determination to succeed against the odds, are testaments to an extraordinary individual who achieved much in a short life. Earlier this year, the release of A Song for Tomorrow, a novel based on Alice’s life written by Alice Peterson, brought Alice’s story to a huge new audience. The novel has been translated into at least six languages, and the publicity around its publication briefly pushed Daydreams back into the top 50 pop albums on Amazon.
