For many years now the event has been held in the East Front of the Castle, but with the ice rink now in that location, for the first time in decades the Carols will return to where it started in the Castle courtyard.

This year the event is set to be another festive evening of singing with the choirs of St Mary’s led by a director of music working in partnership with the musicians from Leamington’s Royal Spa Brass.

Compère Annie Othen will be returning for this year's event and there will also be a range of seasonal refreshments including mulled wine.

The concert also helps to raise a five figure sum for local charities and good causes every year.
