A packed programme of festive favourites is on offer this Christmas at Cadogan Hall in central London.

On 8 and 9 December, join Barts Choir for a concert featuring Johann Sebastian Bach's Magnificat, Corelli's Christmas Concerto and Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on Christmas Carols, along with carols for choir and audience.

On 11 December, Christmas Cracker is a compilation of seasonal classics and sing-along carols including O Holy Night, Let it Snow, O Come, All Ye Faithful and I'll be home for Christmas. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is joined by conductor Stephen Bell and West End vocalists Emma Hatton (Wicked, Evita) and Alex Gaumond (Miss Saigon, Company).

On 12 December, step back in time for A Dickensian Christmas. Toast the Christmas spirit with the City of London Choir and a programme of Victorian carols, classics and readings from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

On 14 December, enjoy Carols and Capers with Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. Maddy and her merry band of musicians entertain with a blend of folk, classical, Baroque and medieval music, with a hint of rock. Band members Andy Watts, Jub (Andrew Davis) Giles Lewin and Steno Vitale play over 20 instruments between them, and are joined by the Carnival Choir.

On 17 December, Simply Kerry and Louise showcases the talents of West End stars Kerry Ellis and Louise Dearman, with Musical Director Craig Adams at the piano and a four-piece band, for a programme of solos and duets from stage and screen, along with some festive favourites.

On 18 December, The Rat Pack at Christmas presents an evening of classics including White Christmas, Let It Snow and Baby it's Cold Outside, with the Manhattan Swing Orchestra.

On 19 December, The West End Does Christmas is hosted by Maureen Lipman with carols and songs from West End stars John Owen-Jones, Julian Ovenden, Gina Beck, Liam Tamne, Aisha Jawando, Grace Mouat, Rob Houchen and Ray Shell.

On 20 December, the Bach Choir presents Carols at Cadogan with London City Brass, conducted by David Hill. The audience is invited to sing along with the choir and brass ensemble.

On 22 December, join Keala Settle in Concert for an evening of Motown soul and pop with the star of 20th century's Fox's The Greatest Showman ("This is Me".) With limited tickets remaining, this popular event may sell out quickly.

On 23 and 24 December it's time for Carols by Candlelight with the Mozart Festival Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Steven Devine. This concert of carols and seasonal classics features performers wearing 18th-century costume in an atmospheric candlelit setting, with readings by Peter Davison.
