There will also be an unusual take on the Christmas story, told by refugees who've made their own journey to find sanctuary.

The money raised from the event will go to Reading Refugee Support Group and Reading Community Gospel Choir, and after the carols there will be hot mulled wine and delicious baklava available for donations.
