Richard Durrant’s Candlelit Christmas Concert with special guests

Sunday 1st December 2019 - Sunday 8th December 2019 Starts 3pm

TICKET PRICE: £17, (£5 18 & under)

“A magical show that brought a sense of peacefulness to an otherwise hectic time. This was both a Christian and Pagan celebration without any sparkly tinsel and commercial sentimentality. Durrant’s playing was masterful, creating the right seasonal feel to this family show” – Brighton Argus

Guitarist and composer Richard Durrant heralds the start of the Christmas season with singer Amy Kakoura and master fiddler Nick Pynn to serve up a festive feast of acoustic Christmas music. This unique show mixes chart topping Christmas songs with early music repertoire, British folk, traditional carols and solo guitar works.

Hosted by natural storyteller Richard, this is a family-friendly event full of midwinter charm. Over many years Richard’s Candlelit Christmas concerts have become a seasonal tradition eagerly awaited by music lovers across the UK. In 2018, live tracks from the tour were featured on BBC6 Music.

“Technically impressive guitar playing on the folk/classical cusp” – The Independent

“An all-embracing winter tapestry…whether pure instrumental or paired with Amy Kakoura’s soothing tones, it’s a tasteful celebration.” Guitar & Bass Magazine
