Steeleye Span’s renowned singer Maddy Prior joins up once again with the Carnival Band during the festive season for their unique celebratory show Carols and Capers, and stops off in Hastings, at St Mary’s In the Castle at 7.30pm on Friday December 19.

Maddy is one of the most familiar voices in British folk rock having sparked interest with her vocal on All Around My Hat in the 1970’s.

The Carnival Band is made up of “five musical explorers, five voices, twenty five instruments,and five hundred fresh ideas for making joyous music.”

Together with Maddy they mix renaissance, modern and ethnic instruments with a refreshing cavalier attitude and plenty of humour, putting their inimitable stamp on a range of familiar favourites that will undoubtedly include The Boars Head, Away in a Manger, Wassail, Joy to the World, While Shepherds Watched and I Saw Three Ships.

This is described as “a Christmas Party to remember in a venue never to be forgotten!”

All auditorium seats have now been sold but balcony seats at £19.50 are still available and only be ordering on 01323 841414 and Music’s Not Dead, in Devonshire Rad, in Bexhill.

Please note tickets cannot be bought in advance at St Mary in the Castle.
