After a year away, we’re super pleased to welcome back York-based progressive rock legends Mostly Autumn for their special Christmas Show.
Les Filles de Illighadad’s music draws from two distinct styles of regional sound, ancient village choral chants and desert guitar. The result is a groundbreaking new direction for Tuareg folk music and a sound that resonates far outside of their village.
Snazzback was born out of busking the streets of Bristol but has coalesced into a jazz ensemble that embodies a myriad of different sounds, freely exploring ambient, dubstep, rumba and funk flavours with a collaborative and improvisatory mindset. Brought to you by Ouroboros and Worm Disco Club, lynchpin of the modern Bristol alternative jazz scene.
International legends The Turbans bind together musics from ‘manywhere’ with their interstellar live show which ignites the crowd.

Growing from the intertwining paths of many talented musicians travelling the world, this extraordinary project has grown in a few years from very humble beginnings, into a progressive name on the London music scene. Its members have gathered from countries such as Turkey, Bulgaria, Israel, Iran, Greece and England to perform in concerts and festivals around the UK, North America, Middle-East, Hong Kong, India and Europe.
