An Albion Christmas is widely regarded as the premier seasonal show, which has been touring for nearly 20 years, and attracts sell-out audiences across the UK. Indeed many people say that their Christmas doesn’t start until they have seen The Albion Christmas Show.
Featuring the combined talents of Simon Nicol (Fairport Convention), Kellie While (Albion Band) Simon Care (Edward II) and the Guvnor himself, Ashley Hutchings, this show is a wonderful celebration of Christmas both traditional and contemporary.
The Albion Christmas Show is a seasonal mixture of carols, spoken word, humorous readings and dance. It really is the perfect way to start your festivities. This year’s tour will feature material from our brand new album available on Talking Elephant Records from Nov 18th, alongside plenty of our old favourites from our back catalogue.
Tuesday 10th December, 7.45pm
All prices include any booking fees.

Moonrakers launch their new album "Ebb & Flow" with a line up that includes their new member, the renowned cellist Jacqui Johnson. On harp is Eleanor Dunsdon, on guitar/bouzouki/whistles is Jon Bennett, and on vocals is Sarah Fell.
The tour calendar for 2020 is already at 24 concert gigs, but they're particularly thrilled to be playing 'at home' for the launch.
Moonrakers pride themselves on having brought traditional and contemporary folk music to new audiences in festivals, arts centres, churches and village halls across the UK in recent years. With songs and tunes from the UK and Irish tradition as well as their own compositions, they’ve been described as “startlingly talented” (Oxford Times), with five albums of "exquisite music "(BBC) and "truly wonderful" (Wycombe Festival) performances.
In the last two years they've played at Towersey, Broadstairs, Bunkfest and Trinity festivals and their previous albums have received glowing reviews in the music press (“The real deal”, The Living Tradition; “Uplifting, sensitively crafted songs and tunes” FATEA magazine) .To see and hear more, go to www.moonrakers.net
