A Charlie Brown Christmas


It's back! We'll be screening the movie prior to the live show, and the band will be performing some new material!

So join us for this extra special evening of Christmas music, performed by film and TV animation composer Jason Frederick and his musicians.

Paying homage to both the genius of composer Vince Guaraldi and creator Charles M. Schulz, the first half of the show features tunes from A Charlie Brown Christmas, along with the pianist's Grammy-winning Cast Your Fate To The Wind and The Great Pumpkin Waltz, and more.

The second half comprises Vince Guaraldi-style Christmas songs and, to end the evening, a swinging singalong 12 Days Of Christmas. An absolute must for jazz lovers and Peanuts, fans, no matter what your age!

Jason Frederick (Piano), Scott Wheeler (Double Bass), Dan Mullins (Drums). 


Tickets £14 / Concessions £12  / Family Ticket £40 (a family group of 4, including at least one child).

Doors open 6.30pm. Movie: 7pm. 1st Live Set: 7.45pm
