The pair will be taking part in Carols by Candlelight, a festive evening of poetry, prose, music and traditional carols. Martin, who is patron of the children’s hospice charity and Jasper, a long-standing supporter, will be among the celebrity readers. There will also be performances by The Rock Choir.
Guests are invited to stay on after the concert and enjoy mulled wine and mince pies.
Tickets cost £15 with under-12s free and are available online at Juliashouse.org/carols or by calling the fundraising office on 01202 644220. Carols By Candlelight will be raising funds to support families with life-limited children across Dorset and Wiltshire.
Organiser Jacqui Greenhaf of Julia’s House said: “Christmas is a really busy time for families. Imagine how much harder it is to find the time to do your shopping, wrap presents or decorate the tree when you are providing round-the-clock care for a really poorly child.
”Carols by Candlelight promises to be a very special evening – but it will be made all the more magical knowing that every ticket sold will help us provide a desperately needed break for a family.”
