Rupert took part in the London Carol Concert fundraising event for the Rainbow Trust, at St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge, on the evening of 6 December 2017.
update: Rainbow Trust announced that the evening raised more than £30,000!
I went along, and it was a fantastic evening, with much lovely singing from a variety of acts, as well as the readings. Not to mention minced pies and mulled wine! And there was the delightful church itself, too – St Paul’s in Knightsbridge.
The people in the banner photo contributed the readings. From left to right, they are Robert Portal, Jason Flemyng, Mary Nightingale, Maureen Lipman, Rory McConnachie, Rupert, and Annabel Croft.
Rupert read the poem A Visit from St Nicholas (commonly known as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas), by Clement Moore. He did a terrific job, of course, and put plenty of oomph into it.
I snuck a couple of photos, which aren’t very sharp, but hopefully the Rainbow Trust will share some of the official ones – of which there were plenty taken!
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
