The annual celebration packed with music and good cheer

Each year Magic Radio hosts a live show to kick off the Christmas season at the London Palladium. Called the Magic Of Christmas, this production offers a festive afternoon of live music from a host of stars.

Magic Radio hit the airwaves in 1998 and has been going strong ever since. Available on 105.4 FM in London and across the UK on digital radio, it mixes fresh laid-back hits and adult contemporary music for a broad range of listeners.

Hosted by Magic Radio’s presenters, the Magic Of Christmas was launched in 2015 with Ronan Keating and James Morrison and it continues to offer a family-friendly vibe while bringing huge names to the stage to put everyone into the Christmas spirit.

Over the years, the incredible event has featured fantastically festive performances from the likes of Rick Astley, The Shires, Birdy, James Blunt, George Ezra, Gregory Porter, Joe McElderry, Kylie Minogue, Boyzone, Gabrielle, Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins.

In 2019, the Magic Of Christmas line-up included Will Young singing Christmas Time, Jack Savoretti doing Christmas Morning and Robbie Williams playing songs from his recently released album The Christmas Present. In addition Beverley Knight gave a stunning rendition of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home), while Martin and Shirlie Kemp came together to perform It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.

Magic Radio announced that the sixth edition of the Magic Of Christmas would be livestreamed into fans’ homes on Sunday 29 November 2020 . Plus the station also revealed it would return to the London Palladium with their annual Christmas celebration on Sunday 21 November 2021.


A livestream edition of the Magic Of Christmas is set for Sunday 29 November 2020 at 18:00. The 2021 edition of the Magic Of Christmas will be held on Sunday 21 November 2021 at 15:00.

The Magic Of Christmas 2020 will be a special digital celebration that you can view online from home via Facebook Watch Party. Then the Magic Of Christmas returns to the London Palladium for their annual Christmas celebration in 2021.

The artist line-up and hosts have not yet been announced for 2020 or 2021. Further announcements will be made on the station in the near future.
