In an unmissable one-off collaboration, five of the English folk scene’s most inventive artists bring you Awake Arise – A Christmas Show For Our Times. Celebrating the riches of our varied winter traditions, the show reflects upon the hope and resilience in music and song and the joy they can bring to all of us in the darkest season.

Award winning trio Lady Maisery (Hannah James, Rowan Rheingans and Hazel Askew) have for nearly a decade produced “some of the most exquisite, thrilling vocal harmony work in the English folk scene” (The Guardian).

The beguiling musical partnership of Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith complete the powerful lineup, bringing the outstanding vocals, sensitive instrumentation and powerful social conscience that has won them widespread critical acclaim. “Rousing stuff” (Observer).
