Catherine Tate has been confirmed as headline reader for our festive fundraising event at Winchester Cathedral on 7th December 2017 – A Christmas Celebration.
The English Actor, Comedian and writer who played the character of Donna Noble alongside David Tennant’s Doctor Who, is taking the place of David who unfortunately cannot make the event due to unforeseen circumstances.
“Sadly, one of our celebrity hosts, David Tennant has advised that due to unforeseen circumstances, he is suddenly now unable to be present at our Christmas Celebration on 7 December at Winchester Cathedral. David is deeply sorry and disappointed, but is away filming on location and complications have meant that he is unavoidably detained.
However, David has arranged for his very good friend and former Dr Who Assistant, Catherine Tate, to take his place! We hope our guests will understand that these things happen in the world of showbiz and continue to look forward to what will be a truly spectacular evening.” – The Murray Parish Trust & Breast Cancer Haven.
Catherine joins a number of high profile personalities from the worlds of TV and Film, including Hugh Bonneville, Olivia Colman and Timothy West, with a performance from renowned soprano, Claire Rutter. An exciting lineup of both musical and theatrical content, the event will include an uplifting variety of festive and magical performances with contributors from Hampshire musical groups including the wonderful Winchester Cathedral Girl Choristers, mixed in with a selection of festive congregational carols for everyone to join in with. All of which are coming together to help raise funds for The Murray Parish Trust and Breast Cancer Haven.
