The Story of Christmas

Founded in 1978, The Story of Christmas is the property and construction industries’ annual Christmas charity event. It takes place each December at St George’s Hanover Square, Mayfair, London in the form of a service of nine lessons and carols. Following this there is a champagne reception and charity auction in the ballroom at The Dorchester on Park Lane. The event raises funds – donated chiefly by companies from the property and construction industries – to finance capital projects benefitting either the homeless or disadvantaged children in the London area.
