St Agnes Fountain come together for one month of the year to perform “rhythmed-up” carols and Christmas music, interspersed with laughter and spoken word.

The band gives Christmas songs a good, if respectful, kicking. They bring sparkling musicianship, humour and heartfelt renditions of your favourite Christmas tunes both original and those you know so well (or thought you did).

Great musical talent, wit and invention in the form of founder member, David Hughes, Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention) and Chris While and Julie Matthews (Radio 2 Folk Award winners). They have brought joy, laughter and a few tears to every concert performance for the last eighteen years.

It is the season their legion of fans have been waiting for because, as they say, “Christmas starts with St Agnes Fountain”.
