Event description
Kick off the festive season with mothers2mothers' Carols by Candlelight

About this event

Our beloved festive event is back! On Thursday 9 December, mothers2mothers (m2m) will host the fourth edition of our annual Carols by Candlelight concert, in the beautiful setting of St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge.

Many of the countries where m2m operares have a shared philosophy called Ubuntu, meaning “I am, because we are”. In the spirit of that philosophy—whatever your beliefs and traditions are—join us for a special evening of singing and readings, as we celebrate our shared connections and stand hand in hand with the communities we serve across sub-Saharan Africa this festive season!

This year—which marks our 20th anniversary—our line-up will be inspired by m2m's African roots, and celebrate all that we have achieved over the last two decades. Since m2m was founded in South Africa in 2001, an incredible 12 million women and children under the age of two have been reached with life-saving health services, and over 11,000 jobs have been created by m2m for women living with HIV.

Tickets are from £30, and children can attend for free. All profits from ticket sales will go directly to m2m's life-changing work in sub-Saharan Africa. By buying a ticket, you can join us in our mission to build healthy, and thriving communities across the 10 African countries we operate in!

Thank you so much for your support and we look forward to seeing you there!

The 2021 Line-up

m2m Ambassador Christian Brassington will lead the celebrity readings, featuring British-Nigerian poet Theresa Lola, British-Ghanaian TV presenter Claudia-Liza Vanderpuije, and writer and podcaster Remi Sadé. Guests will also be entertained by special performances by South-African Jazz vocalist Sandile Gontsana and St Paul’s Church Choir.

Following the evening’s performances, you are invited to join us for mulled wine and mince pies. We simply cannot think of a better way to get in the festive spirit!
