Captives & Friends Christmas Party 2016
Fri 16 December 2016, 19:00 – 22:30 GMT
TICKETS ON SALE AT 12.00 NOON ON SATURDAY 26TH NOVEMBER. DON'T MISS OUT!
After a year away, our now traditional Christmas party is back!
Come and join us on Friday 16th December at 7.00pm at the Blue Moon Cafe in Sheffield for a festive evening of delicious food, wonderful music, excellent company and great times. This year we are welcoming...
BEFORE BREAKFAST - a brand new band featuring the combined talents of Gina Walters, Debra Finch and Lucy Revis (Bobby Pins / Screaming Maldini / Reverend & the Makers to name just a few of their manifold previous and other projects) on piano, cello and vocals. With songs charting the range of human experience, they channel the spirit of Regina Spektor to take you on a wildly imaginative musical journey, performed with care, passion and honesty. They are *literally* Ben's new favourite band and this will only be their third gig.
LAURA JAMES - long time friend of Captives on the Carousel, Laura is a simply brilliant musician. Spinning webs of sheer music delight, her Elliott Smith and Joni Mitchell inspired songs are poetic and filled with emotional warmth.
CAPTIVES ON THE CAROUSEL - which is us of course. If you've read this far you know what we do. Expect the usual, plus even more Christmassy music this year!
We will be raising money on the night for ASSIST SHEFFIELD who are a local charity supporting destitute asylum seekers with small welfare payments, subsidised bus passes and accommodation. Every ticket includes a donation, and on the night we'll be holding a raffle (and maybe even a small quiz??).
As always your ticket price includes a delicious two course vegetarian or vegan meal from the amazing Blue Moon chefs. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements and we'll be happy to sort it out.
Tickets are £13 and go on sale at 12.00 noon on Saturday 26th November. The capacity is limited and we've always sold out - in 2014 on the same day tickets went on sale. So don't hang about!
Without doubt this is our favourite gig of the year. We were gutted that we had to miss last year, but this one will be extra special to make up for it! We can't wait to see you on the 16th
Happy Christmas from Sarah & Ben xxx
