Quintessentially Foundation's Charity Concert

Quintessentially Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Quintessentially Lifestyle, is proud to announce the inaugural Fayre of St James charity concert on Thursday 29th November.  The concert will play host to a Dickensian theme in St James’s Church, Piccadilly, with VIP and celebrity performances from some of the UK’s finest talent. All proceeds from the evening will be donated to War Child, the international charity dedicated to protecting children affected by war. 

Marking the 200 year anniversary of Charles Dickens as one of Britain’s most celebrated authors, guests will be invited to a pre-concert drinks reception in the grounds of St James’s Church. Both drinks and atmosphere will hark back to a bygone era whilst revellers will be amused by an array of themed entertainment from street sellers to pick pockets, all paying homage to the great novelist whilst setting the mood for the much anticipated concert. 

500 guests will then take their seats for a spectacular night of Dickensian carols and Christmas cheer, boasting live performances from James Morrison, The London Contemporary Orchestra and London Community Gospel Choir and readings from Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Alex Jennings (The Queen and Whitechapel) who have all donated their time in support of War Child. 

Guests are then invited to an exclusive late night reception and shopping experience at prestigious luxury department store, Fortnum & Mason.
