Join Czech performer, actor and singer Tomáš Vaněk in London for a festive performance for one night only. Performing a selection of Christmas classics, traditional carols and musical hits in Czech, Slovak and English, Tomáš will be joined by a range of incredible musicians, including pianist Kristina Brachtlová and an accompanying choir with performances of traditional Slovak folk dances. This all-ages concert will be a magical evening of sharing in Czech cultural customs and traditions to get you in the festive spirit!

In an intercultural celebration of the UK’s growing and vibrant Czech community, Tomáš will be accompanied by a specially formed children’s choir featuring students from Czech and English schools across London and its surrounding counties. The children’s choir highlights partnerships with charities, voluntary-run organisations and institutions such as the Czech School Without Borders, Czech School Berkshire, Czech and Slovak school Okénko, Czech School Surrey, Czech and Slovak Club Oxford, and the children’s folklore ensemble Sovička, in showcasing Czechia’s continuing cultural innovations and creativity in the UK. This event will further provide new and valuable opportunities for young Czech performers to engage in a cross-community collaboration and promote the best of Czech culture to wider audiences.

Tomáš Vaněk is a Czech musical performer known for his leading performances in musicals and stage productions such as The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Tick, Tick…Boom!, Bonnie & Clyde and Rent.

A review of Tomáš's performance at the Czech Embassy in London in December 2018:

"The finale was a spirited rendition of Karel Gott’s classic ‘Lady Karneval’, unlikely to be equalled anywhere on the London stage."
(Edward Peacock,

"Great singing by Vaněk, aka the Czech Elvis!"
