Get ready for more festive cheer than you ever knew you needed, with classical Yuletide favourites from the Nutcracker Suite and more, the pop Christmas numbers we all love more than Quality Streets, and a vigorous slug of singalong carols - all performed by the 50-piece Basement Orchestra and their choir of angels. This will be Basement Orchestra's first Christmas show since pre-covid and it's one you won't want to miss.

About Basement Orchestra
Basement Orchestra makes beautiful music in unexpected places. Classical music breaks free of the concert hall and has a bit of a riot. Founded in 2012, Basement Orchestra is now a 50-piece musical behemoth. In that time, they have brought their come-as-you-are vibe and blissful noises to a variety of unusual spaces, including the iconic Rough Trade Record Stores, the even more iconic Bethnal Green Working Men's Club and several windy car parks. They have provided live scores to up-and-coming filmmakers, and have entertained tripped-out revellers in the way they least expected on the main stage of Secret Garden Party and at Mighty Hoopla.
