This Christmas, the families and loved ones of Missing People, supporters and guests of the charity and members of the public are invited to attend Carol Services around the UK, in Edinburgh, Liverpool, London and Manchester.

The annual events are designed to bring people together to remember those who are missing at Christmas. Each Carol Service features a unique line up of performers and readers, with tickets for the Manchester and Liverpool Carol Services being entirely free of charge, thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery. The services are a very poignant time for those missing someone they love and an opportunity to come together in solidarity and hope. 

If you have a loved one missing, or a loved one who has been missing in the past, please do not pay for your ticket through the link below - contact our Services team on 116 000 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Missing People's flagship Carol Service at the magnificent St Martin-in-the-Fields on Trafalgar Square is a sell-out every year and in 2016 will take place on Monday 12th December.

The Carol Service will be hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald OBE and will  feature moving tributes from familiars of missing people, readings from actors Amanda Redman, Rebecca Front and Jason Watkins. 

Music will be performed by the Royal Mail's "Mail Voice Choir", the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Missing People Choir, which is made up of those who have experienced a loved one go missing and their supporters.
