"2008 Christmas Concert"

At St. Margaret's Church, Westminster Abbey on 4th December 2008. A fantastic line up entertained a packed audience.

Charles Dance, Revelation Choir, Doug Rao and Alex Walkinshaw (both from ITV's the Bill) were all part of this years concert. St. Thomas' Lupus Trust Campaign Director, Angie Davidson surprised the audience by joining Revelation Choir to sing 'Shackles', Alex's son Jack decided he wanted to join dad and baby Casper (see his story on this site) spotted Angie giving the final address and decided he'd join her - so fun was had by all!
