Schools Carol Singing with the Organ

Part of Schools

Schools are invited to sing festive favourites with the accompaniment of our magnificent Royal Festival Hall organ.

Start your day in the spirit of the season by singing carols and holiday songs from across the ages and around the world, with backing from the historic Harrison & Harrison organ at Royal Festival Hall.

In an interactive concert for schools, sing classic and modern favourites and discover the wonders of how organs work and what they can do.

Following the concert, spaces are reserved on site for picnic lunches, and you are invited to take part in drop-in organ craft workshops, 1pm – 2pm.

No prior singing experience is necessary in this casual singing opportunity, though harmonies are encouraged. Song sheets are distributed on the day.
