The festive spirit comes to the Apex, in Bury St Edmunds, next week with two different events from either side of the musical spectrum.

On Monday Roy Wood’s famous rock and roll band will be playing at the venue and is set to play hits such as I Can Hear The Grass Grow, Flowers In The Rain, Blackberry Way, See My Baby Jive, and of course I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday.

The following evening Carols by Candlelight is being performed by the Locrian Ensemble.

In lavish period costume, in front of a candlelit setting, these charismatic performers will perform favourites including carols, string medleys of familiar Christmas tunes and seasonal surprises.

They are joined for the event on Tuesday, by Jill Washington, West End star soprano of Phantom of the Opera, who sings tunes from Handel’s Messiah to White Christmas, The 12 Days of Christmas and Walking in the Air.

The Locrian Ensemble are established as one of Britain’s most popular touring groups.

They have a host of television and film credits to their name and have recently topped the classical charts with their playing for Debbie Wiseman’s BBC TV score of Wolf Hall.
