Friends of The Connection come join in the Carol Service in aid of the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal with St Martin-in-the-Fields. For over 90 years the BBC and St Martin-in-the-Fields have partnered to raise support from Radio 4 listeners to help homeless and vulnerably housed people. In the last two years, the Appeal has raised over £5 million. The money we raise directly supports people through The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields and across the UK through the Vicar’s Relief Fund (VRF) and the Frontline Network. Please note that some seats at St Martin-in-the-Fields have a restricted view and may have no view of the performing area. Seating is offered on a 'first come, first served' basis. Doors open at 6.00pm, ready for the service to begin at 6.30pm. The service will be finished by 8 pm.
