A trip to the wonderfully cheesy sing-along carols at the Royal Albert Hall will raise a smile in even the most beleagured of us. It is pure Christmas Stilton and well, you have to go and sing along to Hark The Herald while doing a Mexican wave in the splendour of the Albert Hall’s ampitheatre and you will know.
Much more tasteful and less fermented Christmas concerts are on offer including The Messiah. If you are lucky it will be a snowy, white christmas, when you come out, just like the ones you used to know. www.royalalberthall.com
