St Agnes Fountain (music)

Hopefully I haven't left it too late to be blogging about the Christmas Institution that is the St Agnes Fountain Christmas show series. Last year's event at Hailsham Pavilion was so over-subscribed that the band are returning again this year, but it's still a for-one-night-only so if you haven't already got your tickets, you might want to book up very soon. The concert is a Spyboy promotion.

The 'Aggies' (to those in the know) will be touring their seasonal show for the thirteenth consecutive year since they got together in 2001 to record their eponymous first album. David Hughes and Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie, together with Chris While and Julie Matthews, present a feast of superb musicianship and inventive arrangements, original Christmas songs and traditional carols. They play a wide range of instruments between them, the only common denominator appearing to be the ukelele! I also saw oud, mandolin, American Indian flute and bodhran among the more unusual names.

Hailsham Pavilion, Sat 14th Dec, 19:30.
Tickets £20, available online, by calling 01323 841414, or in person from the Box Office.
