Raymond Gubbay on Christmas and snow

This is a busy time of year for concert promoter Raymond Gubbay. He has festive concerts all over the UK and Ireland, including 24 at the Royal Albert Hall alone, sometimes three a day.

"We're right in the thick of it. It's really very special, people just love it… Messiah and King’s College, Cambridge; Carols by Candlelight; and Christmas Carol sing-alongs involving all sorts of orchestras - the Philharmonia, Classic FM's Orchestra on Tour; the Royal Philharmonic; the London Philharmonic; our own London concert orchestra.”

The snow has made logistics particularly difficult this year, but Gubbay says “we haven’t lost any shows yet”.
