Big Christmas Wind Orchestra and Choir

London's Biggest Christmas Wind Orchestra and Choir!

Hundreds of musicians come together annually for a huge festive musical afternoon, performing Christmas music in central London! Everyone is welcome, whether a seasoned professional or an absolute beginner, with any wind orchestra instrument or just your voice. 

We perform a wide range of well-known Christmas songs, with sheet music provided for all performers. This year our festive extravaganza will be the biggest yet!

Who We Are

The Big Christmas Wind Orchestra was formed in 2012 by friends who wanted to bring a few musically keen people together for a grand Christmas play-through of favourite songs. It was so successful that we carried on and grew and grew, including welcoming singers from 2017!

Conducted by Matthew Hardy, musicians from London and around the UK come together in an annual performance. We mix amateurs and professionals, with a real focus on bringing people into regular making music through an enormous, inspirational event.

What happens at our events?

We usually perform carols and other Christmas music for three hours at a central London location. Our huge performance brings festive cheer to all of our participants and a growing crowd of audience around our festive musical extravaganza.

Any musician is welcome, regardless of ability, and no rehearsal or preparation (other than an instrument or voice) is required. Performers who don't usually make music in a band or choir are especially welcome.  We provide all of the sheet music to play Christmas carols and tunes that are accessible to everyone - just let us know if you'll need any adaptations e.g. large print.
