Actor Martin Clunes, journalist Alastair Stewart and broadcaster Alan Titchmarsh are guest readers at the celebrations which will raise money to support local people living with cancer.

Bagpipes will lead around 300 guests to Hampshire’s oldest church before they enjoy a special evening of carols and music, including performances by Wessex Cancer Trust’s celebrated Cosham Sing for Life choir.
