The Speaker’s carol service is usually held on the town hall steps with schools participating, and then at St Joseph’s Hospice, supported by Hackney Borough Ecumenical Deans Group.

But with the current restrictions it will instead be broadcast online from Stoke Newington High Street Methodist Church.

There will also be messages from MPs Meg Hillier and Diane Abbott, The Speaker of Hackney and Rev Andrew Letby, the Methodist Superintendent for Hackney.

Speaker Kam Adams said: “We hope you will enjoy this traditional time. Bring your own minces pies and mulled wine.”
