Hundreds of ice skaters will join award-winning singer Beverley Knight in a free charity Christmas performance at 5.30pm tomorrow (Thursday 3 December 2009), at the Natural History Museum ice rink in South Kensington, London.

Ms Knight will be performing songs from her new album, along with Christmas favourites for a sing-a-long with skaters and fans.

The event is to launch 'The Big Christmas Sing', a fundraising initiative from the UK-based international development charity Christian Aid encouraging people across the country to get together and sing to raise money for some of the world’s poorest people this Christmas.

Beverley Knight said: "Singing is a passion for me and millions like me, especially at Christmas. Hook up with your friends and get everyone singing their favourite songs for the Big Christmas Sing. It will raise money for some amazing projects around the world."

Ice rink tickets cost £13 for adults, £8.50 for children. For tickets call 0844 847 1576. To sign up for the Big Christmas Sing, visit
