Half gig, half dance show, and half panto!

Join the BBC award-winning team of musicians and dancers for the best festive live music, song, and dance.

It’s Christmas Eve, and the regulars of The Olde Fighting Cocks are excited about the night ahead, it’s going to be the folk and hip-hop dance party of the year!

To their dismay, the landlady, Jasmineezer Scrooge, has more profitable ambitions and is preparing to launch her new business… the ‘Oompah Techno Bar’.

Cheap alco-pops, luminous lighting, and mind-numbing bass beats are all in danger of alienating the local community and ruining Christmas! Fortunately, some insightful souls are at hand to lead her back to her senses.

Featuring folk powerhouse The Demon Barbers; artists from Breaking Tradition Dance Company; a new seasonal repertoire, and a slightly unhinged approach to their family-friendly stage shows.
