My December plans are in place, the Christmas repertoire is ready to go, the Christmas jumpers are on standby and it’s still only October! Scary… Well, that is unless you LOVE Christmas as much as I do!
You’ll see from my gig list that along with Amy Chalmers, Dionne McHugh and Izzy Owen, we are doing a 7-date tour of NWTC’s North West venues, singing a cappella Christmas carols around their Christmas trees. These are all free to attend so turn up and sing along with us (there will be carol books waiting for you at the venues!)
Matt Lammin & Friends will be collaborating with the Liverpool String Quartet on 12th December at The Bluecoat Arts Centre in Liverpool and on 14th December in the afternoon at Mayer Hall in Bebington. Both these events are sure to sell out so head to The LSQ’s schedule page to point you in the right direction to buy tickets online.

On Wednesday 17th December, I will be directing the sixth annual Radio City Christmas Concert at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. This is always a stand-out event which showcases a whole bunch of choirs and singers and this year will be no different. This year, the bill will include Sense of Sound Singers, MiC Lowry, The Valentine Brothers, Birkenhead High School Academy, Creative Community Choir, The Bebington Bitter Men, Kaboodle Choir, Sunlight Unplugged, Up For Arts Community Choir and Wirral Grammar Boys featuring Complete Works.
Tickets for The Radio City Concert will be available very soon from the radio station and from the cathedral.

Dionne and I will be performing an array of original songs and sophisticated covers for the fourth time at Little Atom’s Live Lounge event at Palm Sugar, Liverpool ONE on Sunday 7th December from 5pm. The will definately be an injection of Christmas in our sets!
Finally, Izzy and I will be performing two duo sets from 9pm at Smugglers Cove on 27th December to wrap up the Christmas schedule.More +
