If there is one sure-fire way in which to spot a celebrity this Christmas it is to head to a charity Carol Concert.

We particularly like the look of Age UK’s concert, with the likes of Joanna Lumley and Russell Watson in attendance. There are a whole host of others to choose from, details of which can be found here.
