England's foremost acoustic/folk-rock band. Ashley Hutchings has daringly led indigenous British music onto world stages. Generally considered to be the father of British Folk Rock, Ashley founded Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention and now leads The Albion Band on base guitar.
Founder of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and The Albion Band, Ashley Hutchings is joined on stage by Folk superstars Kellie While, Simon Care and Simon Nicol, for an evening of traditional English Christmas music, dancing and celebration. Full of Carols, spoken word, humorous readings and dance, this show takes you on a guided tour through the Christmas customs of Britain.
The Bluejays (Winners of the National Vintage Award for ?Best Band') present an electrifying and authentic tribute to the era when music changed the world forever. Between 1955 and 1959, artists such as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, Eddie Cochran and Little Richard not only transformed the musical landscape but also the way we continue to look at the world today. Much more than just a concert show, The Bluejays take you on a historical journey via breathtaking renditions of the biggest hits of the era (Rock Around The Clock, That's All Right, That'll Be The Day, Tutti Frutti, Summertime Blues, Johnny B. Goode, Wake Up Little Susie, La Bamba, A Teenager In Love and many more) and reveal how the Rock ?n' Roll movement, rather than being ?a communicable disease?, brought about a dream of equality and freedom that we still chase to this day.
Eric has been invited to a Christmas fancy dress party where the only person he knows is the host. Just before he arrives the host is murdered; one of the guests telephones the police and, as the doorbell rings, there is Eric dressed as PC Dixon of Dock Green. Misunderstandings multiply as a real Inspector arrives and, guess what, everyone at the party has a reason to want the host out of the way! A murder, a Christmas party, a comedy, Eric and 20 of the best 60s hits - what more could you want! Evenin' all!

They've appeared at the New Vic every Christmas for more than 30 years - a remarkable tradition that means as much to the Choir as it does to us. Formed in 1947 to compete at the 1947 Llangollen Eisteddfod, 2017 sees them celebrating their 70th anniversary. There is no better way to celebrate than being amongst friends, so for this special year this is their second appearance at the New Vic, having had a successful concert earlier in July.

Following on from last year's spectacular adaptation of The Snow Queen, this Christmas we set sail on the high seas to bring to life a classic tale of buccaneers and buried gold in our stunning trademark style. Filled with swashbuckling sword fights, live-on-stage music, humour, puppetry and lots of excitement, this is the perfect festive treat for the whole family! 1750, Sleepy Cove. Tired of the quiet life, Gem dreams of adventure and excitement. When a mysterious stranger comes to stay at The Admiral Benbow Inn, she believes her luck is about to change. And so begins an epic journey. A journey filled with pirates and possibilities; buried treasure and blue horizons; seafarers and scallywags. And in the middle of it all, a good-hearted cook called Long John Silver - but is he friend or foe? As Gem helps search for treasure on faraway shores, meeting larger than life characters along the way, she discovers there's far more to a life of adventure than she ever imagined.
