Carols by Candlelight 2022

Held this year at the magnificent Concert Hall in Reading Town Hall and hosted by Launchpad patrons, Matt Allwright and Danyl Johnson, there will be sing-along carols performed by the joyful Reading Community Gospel Choir and Bulmershe School Choir, readings by special guests and inspiring stories about our work with people in housing crisis - all against the backdrop of magical candlelight.

There will also be some incredible prizes to be won in our raffle on the night - including dinner for two in the Reading Room at the Roseate, a £50 voucher for The Oracle and a £75 voucher for Jacobs the Jewellers. Please bring cash or card with you to enter the raffle!

How much is a ticket?

Tickets are £10 per person and children under 3 can attend for free.

Is seating reserved?

This event has unreserved seating. If you, or a member of your group, have mobility difficulties and require accessible seating, you can request this option at point of booking.

If you have any questions please email or call 0118 950 7656.

Will refreshments be available?

The Waterhouse Bar at Reading Town Hall will be open from 5.30pm to 6pm for you to enjoy a drink before the event. Only drinks bought at the venue will be allowed into the Concert Hall.

What difference will I be making?

Every ticket sale for this unmissable evening will help Launchpad provide homes for Reading’s most vulnerable this winter. Our supported housing offers warm, clean and safe accommodation for up to 104 people in need – which will be a lifeline to the many individuals, couples and families due to be made homeless by the rise in the cost of living over the coming months.

If you are unable to attend, we would really appreciate a donation this Christmas so we can continue ensuring local people have a roof over their head and a place to call home.
