The Albion Christmas Show

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. Simon Nicol, Kellie While and Simon Care join founder of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and The Albion Band, Ashley Hutchings on stage, for an evening of traditional English Christmas songs, music and lighthearted fun. Kellie takes time out from working with her mum, Chris While, for which both the U.K. press and public alike have praised her. Folk enthusiasts will know Kellie from her work with The Albion Band. She received personal praise from Ron Sexsmith for her beautiful version of his song ‘Riverbed’ on her album Tenacious, which put her on the map as a soloist. Simon Care is currently working with Edward II and has always had a passion for Traditional English dance and song. Simon also works with Banter, Tickled Pink and the Morris On Band Simon Nicol, founder/current member of Fairport finishes the line up to make this a truly festive treat. He is regarded as one of the finest acoustic guitarists in the world………His voice is pretty special too! 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.

With sell-out tours including venues such as Buxton Opera House, The New Vic Stoke and The Sage, Gateshead, The Albion Xmas Show is a very popular show appealing to all ages.

Amelia Coburn Plus Support

Since being nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards in 2017, Teesside's very own Amelia Coburn has been busy but maybe not in quite the way you'd imagine.

Yes, she played the Cambridge Folk Festival. Yes, she has played across Europe in her own right and at ukulele and folk festivals. Yes, Mark Radcliffe invited her to play a very select stage at Knutsford Music Festival. Yes, she supported and performed on stage with Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel. Twice. And. yes, she was invited to not only play at The Wedding Present curated At The Edge of The Sea festival AND then supported the band at their packed Paris date in 2018. 

Perhaps more importantly though, for her development as surely one of the country's most distinctive musical voices, she has been travelling and living in France, Mexico and, by the time she returns for this event, Russia as part of her language studies. Exposure to these cultures has already made its way into the clutch of new songs she has written which, while drifting across folk, jazz and latin-pop, sees her unique ear for an original melody, playfulness and use of THAT voice intact.

She will, no doubt, still be presenting her inimitable interpretations of artists as diverse as Kate Bush, Bowie and The Specials and may have a surprise guest and instrument or two but this is, in many ways, the start of phase two for Amelia where she continues to develop her own original musical world and aims to take you to a really magical place. Be there.

Mike and the lads have promised to ensure that their legendary Christmas shows are safe for now - giving everyone the chance to continue to start Christmas off in style here in ARC!

With a history that has seen them take the name of Teesside across three continents and that rare ability to entertain and engage with an audience of every age, a Wildcats of Kilkenny Christmas Show is as synonymous with the festive period as the Boxing Day match. Don’t expect anything less than a snow-filled, carol singing, Disney-tastic celebration of Christmas just like the ones we used to know. Special guests and spot prizes for the most festive outfit.
