Travel: Set out from Waterloo station (Zone 1 on national rail, Northern Line Charing Cross branch, Bakerloo and Jubilee Lines) in time to reach the meeting point by 18:00 see details below.
Meet at the Nelson Mandela bust/sculpture at the south-west side of the Royal Festival Hall (on the South Bank only a few minutes walk from Waterloo station). We will walk across Hungerford Bridge to see the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square, then make our way through St James's Park, with a lovely night-time view of the London Eye beyond the spires of Whitehall, and on through Victoria to Eaton Square.
The Whitehall Choir will be performing their annual Christmas Carol Concert at St Peter's Church, Eaton Square, SW1W 9AL starting at 19:30, lasting about an hour, with wine + mince pies afterwards. The Whitehall Choir is one of London’s leading amateur choirs.
Buy tickets (£20, £15 (side aisles), £8 (restricted view) on the door subject to availability - tickets are inclusive of the wine and mince pies afterwards - or in advance (but with an additional booking fee) via their website: http://www.whitehallchoir.org/documents/flyer2017christmas.pdf
No need for us all to sit together, so feel free to choose the price tier that suits you!
You can do either the walk, or the concert, or both. If you want to attend the concert only, please meet at the entrance to St Peter's Church at 19:00 hrs and Karen will look out for you.
