This much-loved event features a new line up every year with a range of entertainers performing traditional and contemporary Christmas songs.

The Lord Mayor’s Seniors Christmas Parties proudly supports the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust.

All the sessions for this year's Lord Mayor's Seniors Christmas Parties have now sold out.
