About Event

The Albion Christmas Band

The Albion Christmas Band are Simon Nicol, Kellie While, Simon Care and Ashley Hutchings. The four stellar musicians are life-long friends and their joy of returning each December to tour and play music together rubs off on their audiences, for whom this heart-warming show has become an unmissable annual tradition.   

Described in The Guardian as "the perfect antidote to the corporate Xmas" the AXB are now in their 22nd year selling out such venues all over the country in the two weeks leading up to Christmas.  

Featuring seasonal songs and tunes smattered with humorous readings and the occasional silly dance. Tickets sell fast so don’t leave it too late to book. 

Founding member and bassist Ashley Hutchings is joined by fellow original bandmates – Fairport Convention’s own Simon Nicol on acoustic guitar and vocals, Simon Care on melodeons, and the ‘honey drenched’ divine vocals of one of the UK’s best folk singers, Kellie While.  Joining them for a special guest appearance will be Ashley’s son, talented singer-songwriter Blair Dunlop.
