St Paul's Church, Covent Garden

This, the first ever NYMT Christmas Concert, took place within the beautiful surroundings of The Actors' Church in the heart of Covent Garden. The 2012 Company and a gathering of alumni presented a feast of Christmas carols, seasonal songs and readings. The magical atmosphere continued afterwards with mulled wine and mince pies. There was a retiring collection in aid of the NYMT Bursary Fund.
