Awake Arise: A Christmas Show For Our Times

Saturday 18 December 2021 at 7:30 pm


Featuring traditional songs, folk carols, spoken word and newly written music to galvanise and brighten the winter season, Awake Arise is a warm gift to the wintertime from five of the most engaging and celebrated performers on the English folk scene.

Award winning trio Lady Maisery (Hannah James, Rowan Rheingans and Hazel Askew) are joined by the musical partnership of Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith who bring the outstanding vocals, sensitive instrumentation and powerful social conscience that has won them widespread critical acclaim.

Reflecting upon the hope and resilience in music and song that can bring joy to us all in the darkest season, Awake Arise is also a rallying cry to embrace the power of collective endeavour as a vital support during times of hardship and loneliness. In this most uncertain of winters, Awake Arise is more than just a great night out; these are essential songs which remind us who we are and why we matter to each other.

Watch a rousing performance of ‘Ederlezi’ here:
