Our annual Christmas folk concert with St Agnes Fountain has been a popular Met tradition for many years. Sadly the “aggies” are not able to tour this year, however we’re delighted to present this streaming show from band members Chris While and Julie Matthews in their place.

Chris and Julie will be performing their seasonal repertoire in this special show featuring many St Agnes Fountain classics (they even have some surprise ‘appearances’ lined up for the interval!). So put the mince pies in the oven, pop a cherry in your snowball, light the fire and spend an evening with them celebrating our favourite holiday season (Christmas hats and jumpers optional).

Tickets are available to watch this stream at home (just click on the “Streaming” area when booking), or in person at The Met on our big screen, with professional quality audio played through the same high-quality speaker system we use for live shows. There will be an opportunity to “meet and greet” Chris and Julie virtually after the show.

Book tickets


Derby Hall @ The Met
Streaming: £16; In person: individual balcony seats £16; tables (max four people) from £48. Prices include fees.

Tickets will be available online until 7pm on the night of the show.

Duration 2 hours (7.30pm to 9.30pm) including a short interval.

This event is available to stream online to your home. To book, just click on the “Streaming” area. Links for the concert and the meet-and-greet will be emailed to you prior to the performance.

Chris and Julie kindly ask that if more than one person is watching in your home that you buy the appropriate number of tickets as you would at a concert. This helps to support not only them but The Met also.

Tickets are also available to view the stream in person projected on The Met’s big screen with professional-quality audio. Ticket buyers can choose to sit around socially distanced tables (maximum four people per table) or in individual seats in the balcony. We have removed many of the balcony seats to allow you to sit in socially distanced groups.
