The Churchfitters Christmas Cracker

For this year’s Chapel Lawn Christmas Party we are delighted to have the opportunity to stage a live Arts Alive event. The Churchfitters is a folk group like no other. A double bass made out of scrap metal. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw. Foot-stomping fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock rhythms. Interlaced with traditional and original festive songs and Christmas carols, this cracker of a show will see Christmas in with a bang - full of surprises, novelties and humour!

Plus Bar. Filled Rolls and Snacks available to purchase.

Tickets Adults £10, Children £5, Family £28

Please get tickets in advance – the last Arts Alive Event sold out.
