Launchpad's Carols By Candlelight 2023

Our fantastically festive Carols by Candlelight will be returning to Reading Town Hall on Tuesday 5 December, from 6pm!

The evening will be hosted by Launchpad Patron, Danyl Johnson and broadcast journalist and presenter at BBC Radio Berkshire, Bridgitte Tetteh.

We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be joined by the English Martyrs Primary School choir and Take Note Community choir. As well as seasonal songs there will be readings as well inspiring stories about Launchpad’s work with people in housing crisis.

Every ticket sale for this unmissable evening will help Launchpad continue to provide homes for Reading’s most vulnerable this winter. Launchpad’s supported housing offers warm, clean, and safe accommodation for over 100 people in need – which are a lifeline to the many individuals, couples, and families at risk of, or who have already lost their homes.

There will also be some incredible prizes to be won in our raffle on the night - including a £50 voucher for Bill’s restaurant, dinner for two in the Reading Room at The Roseate and a tour of the Double-Barrelled Brewery. Please bring cash or card with you to enter the raffle!

For anyone that is unable to attend, you can still support our work with a donation so we can help ensure local people have a roof over their head and a place to call home. Simply visit
