York’s 62nd Annual Community Carol Concert returns to York Barbican on Sunday 15 December 2019.

This ever-popular Christmas event has sold out regularly over the last few years and for many marks the beginning of the festive season, including the best in local musical talent such as:

  • York Music Forum Stage Centre Concert Band
  • Poppleton Road Primary School
  • Tang Hall Primary School
  • All Saints RC School Choir
  • Spirit of Harmony
  • Steve Cassidy

Once again the Musical Director is Mike Pratt and hosting the event will be Rev Andrew Foster and BBC Radio York presenter, Adam Tomlinson.

Come along for an afternoon of festive entertainment and exercise your vocals by singing your favourite Christmas Carols and book your seat early for this marvellous community seasonal event.

"This was the best Community Carol Concert at York Barbican that we have attended and we have been to lots. The Shepherd's Brass Band youth section kept us entertained from before the concert started properly until we departed. The three choirs were brilliant and so enthusiastic. We loved the whole event from start to finish. It was relaxed and refreshing to have the programme devoted to the children. More like this please." - York Press


Bring the whole family to the festival concert with the family ticket package, including admission for 2 x adults, and 2 x children under 14.
