29 Celebrities read 'Twas The Night Before Christmas

Bringing together twenty-nine speakers, entertainers, and TV personalities from our roster, NMP Live is proud to present a very special celebrity reading of Clement Clarke Moore's traditional Christmas poem, A Visit from St Nicholas – more commonly known as 'Twas The Night Before Christmas.

Introduced by British stage and screen actor, Simon Callow OBE (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love) the short film features a double Olympic gold medalist; a Rugby World Cup winner; three comedians; two knights; one Dame; one Lord; one Baroness; three Britain’s Got Talent winners; one World, European and Commonwealth champion swimmer; a vicar (with a number-one pop single to his name); a Russian World chess grandmaster; three actors; a former MP; one QC; two pop stars; the World’s greatest living explorer; three magicians; one doctor and one World Cup semi-finalist England footballer!

With each celebrity reading a line from the 1823 classic festive poem, there is no other version (as far as we know) featuring as many British celebrities. So grab a warm mince pie, pour yourself a glass of mulled wine, and get in the festive mood with our very special version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas...
