Christmas with the Queen's Six

Based at Windsor Castle, the members of The Queen's Six make up half of the Lay Clerks of St George's Chapel, whose homes lie within the Castle walls.

This rare privilege demands the highest musical standards, as they sing regularly for the Royal family, notably the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as well as Prince Philip’s funeral.

The Queen's Six have extensively toured Europe and the USA but will be debuting at Norden Farm this Christmas, so join them for an evening mixing traditional carols with some more modern offerings and plenty of festive cheer.
