Indoors and outdoors, cathedrals, churches and secular spaces, there truly is a service to suit everyone, whether you’re after family-friendly carol services, Santa-led singing, cherubic choirs or even a full-on big band experience led by eighties crooner Rick Astley (at the Royal Albert Hall on December 15 and 16).
