Barnardos young supporters at the Royal Albert Hall

‘Earth Wonder’ at The Royal Albert Hall

With Barnardo's Young Supporters, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Barnardo’s will be at the Royal Albert Hall once again this November, working in collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra to bring an unparalleled musical experience for the young people involved and raise vital funds for Barnardo’s.

Young people from across the UK come together and sing to raise vital funds for the children and young people we work to improve the lives of every single day. 

This year our musical theme will be ‘Earth Wonder’, a celebration of our Land, Sea, Sky and Nature. Our audience will enjoy both massed choir and orchestral pieces and will celebrate some of Britain’s most adored music classics.  

Join over 950 Barnardo’s Young Supporters from across the UK for an unforgettable evening of music and song supported by the world-famous Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. These annual Barnardo’s concerts deliver an unparalleled musical experience for the young people involved, driving self-esteem, providing musical inspiration, and creating joyous lifetime memories. 

Under the baton of Artistic Director Benjamin Pope, over 23 choirs come together to sing at this flagship concert to raise vital funds for our Christmas poverty appeal, supporting children, young people and their families most in need at a time when the cost-of-living crisis hits hardest. 

Hosted by Barnardo’s President, TV presenter, and journalist Natasha Kaplinsky OBE, the concert has a repertoire that will celebrate some of Britain's most amazing popular and classical music spanning Debussy and Dvořák to ELO, Cold Play, and The Lion King!
