The Fortieth Presentation took place on
Wednesday 13th December 2017

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 in London’s Mayfair in the form of a service of nine lessons and carols. Readings are presented by a whole host of celebrated names from public life. Festive music is performed by the Band and Fanfare Trumpeters of the Irish or Welsh Guards and the Choristers and Layclerks of the Choir of St George’s Chapel Windsor Castle. Following the service 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 in the property and construction industries – to finance capital projects benefitting either the homeless or disadvantaged children in the London area.

We are delighted to announce that the 2017 event raised over £690,000 – many thanks to all those who supported!
