London’s Transport Choir
London’s Transport Choir have been singing at the Festival of Carols held at St Martin-in-the-fields for over 60 years, and this year is no different. 🎄
Singers from across London’s transport industry make up the choir. It is open to anyone associated with the industry with a passion for singing with others. 🎤
The choir is a community choir with no entry qualifications. If this sounds like something you’d love, and you’re free to meet on Tuesdays, then consider joining the choir.
How to support
If you’d like to support any of the charities involved in the Festival of Carols, you can learn more about them here 👇🏼
❄️Members and donations financially support London’s Transport Choir. The donations pay for printed music scores, new equipment and a dedicated musical director.
❄️ Railway Children was founded in 1995 with the purpose of supporting children who have no one to care for and protect them. Railway Children fight for vulnerable children who live alone on the streets. They provide them with protection and opportunity when they have nowhere else to turn.
❄️ Transport Benevolent Fund was founded in 1923 by the predecessors of TfL to help its staff who fell upon hard times. Today, its still there to help when things aren’t going well for those who work in the public transport industry. It is also there for those who are retired from it.
❄️ Worshipful Company of Carmen is one of the 110 Livery Companies of the City of London. Much like all City Livery Companies, the Carmen have a long tradition of helping those in need. The trust now mainly focuses on its grant giving to help causes associated with the transport and logistics industries.
