The Albion Christmas Show is now into its 17th year and has attracted sell-out audiences across the UK.

Founder of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and The Albion Band, Ashley Hutchings is joined on stage by Kellie While, Simon Care and Simon Nicol, for an evening of traditional English Christmas music, dancing and celebration.  Full of Carols, spoken word, humourous readings and dance, this show takes you on a guided tour through the Christmas customs of Britain.

Folk enthusiasts will know Kellie While from her work with The Albion Band, and duo tours with her mum Chris While.

 Simon Care is currently working with Edward II and has always had a passion for Traditional English dance and song. Simon also works with Whapweasel, Tickled Pink and the Lark Rise Band

Simon Nicol, founder 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………

 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.

Described in the Guardian as “the perfect antidote to the corporate Christmas”, this is a show you must not miss!!!! 

These wonderful musicians and story tellers are now firm friends of us at Folk in the Barn and we’re really happy to be hosting their Christmas Show back at the popular Gulbenkian.
