Details

2016 sees the 18th year of the much loved Albion Christmas Band Tour. This talented group of friends look forward every year to bringing their brand of Christmas cheer to delighted audiences all over the country. Two original members of Fairport Convention – Simon Nicol and Ashley Hutchings MBE are joined by Traditional English song and dance expert and melodeonist Simon Care (Tickled Pink, Edward II, Lark Rise Band) and the sublime talents of singer and guitarist Kellie While, for an evening of traditional English Christmas music, dancing and celebration. Full of carols, poetry and funny tales with a Christmassy theme, this show takes you on a guided tour through the Christmas customs of Britain.

A popular show which sells out every year and described in the Guardian as “the perfect antidote to the corporate Christmas”,and with a new album out this year, especially for you, this is a show you must not miss!
