AN ADDITIONAL 200 tickets for a sell-out celebrity packed concert in aid of two Hampshire charities will go on sale on Monday.

The extra tickets are for the Christmas Celebration at Winchester Cathedral on December 7 – a joint fundraising event for Breast Cancer Haven Wessex in Titchfield and The Murray Parish Trust.

Actors David Tennant, Hugh Bonneville, Olivia Colman and Timothy West are lined up to give readings and there will be a performance from renowned soprano, Clare Rutter.

The event will also include an uplifting variety of festive and magical performances with contributors from Hampshire musical groups to include Winchester Cathedral Girl Choristers.

The new seats will be located in the North Nave Aisles of the cathedral.

Broadchurch star and former Doctor Who actor, David Tennant said, “I am thrilled to be able to help with this incredible event. As soon as my friend, actress, Sarah Parish asked, I was in! I will play my part in making sure this will be a night to remember for everyone who attends and for these two very important local charities.”

Hugh Bonneville, who played Lord Grantham in the hit series, Downton Abbey said, “What a magnificent setting for this one-off magical evening. I am delighted to be part of what I know will be a very special event for Winchester and for raising vital funds for The Murray Parish Trust and Breast Cancer Haven.”

Sally Taylor, BBC South Today presenter and chair of The Breast Cancer Haven Development Board said, “We have been thrilled with the response we have received for this event. The general tickets were sold within 48 hours and we have a waiting list. We are so pleased to be able to offer these new tickets but they will disappear very quickly and so I would strongly recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.”

Breast Cancer Haven is the UK’s only national charity that specialises in offering a free programme of personalised specialist help and support to anyone affected by breast cancer.

Sarah Parish and James Murray founded the Trust in memory of their late daughter, Ella-Jayne to help support the work of the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at University Hospital Southampton.

The Murray Parish Trust is currently campaigning to raise £2million, which will be match-funded by the Government, to build a brand new Paediatric Emergency and Trauma Department (A&E) which will serve the South of England and Channel Islands.

A limited number of seats are available near to the pulpit costing £40 with ‘Restricted View’ tickets available at £20. Book at the Winchester Cathedral box office.
