It’s Christmas – Live From The Royal Albert Hall

Sky One and Sky Arts, together with specialist live-events producer CC-Lab, are pleased to announce an All-Star line-up Christmas concert at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, which will take place on Thursday, December 7, 2017.

Some of the biggest names in pop are lined up to perform their favourite Christmas hits, old and new, at this festive celebration. Each performance will be caught on camera for a magical Christmas special to be aired on Sky One and Sky Arts over the holiday period, premiering on Sky One on either December 23rd or 24th.

Hosted by comedian and actor Jason Manford, the show will see an array of artists performing contemporary Christmas classics comprising an all-star cast featuring Holly Johnson, Shakin’ Stevens, Melanie C, Marc Almond, Ricky Wilson, Fleur East, The Vamps, Tom Chaplin, Jona Lewie, Nadine Coyle and Alexander Armstrong, plus more acts to be announced.

The musical director for the event is acclaimed singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt, who will lead his band, The Merry Pranksters. Harcourt is also putting together a choir and an orchestra especially for the event, which will be accompanied by the award-winning string quartet Dirty Pretty Strings. The emphasis will be on Christmas classics that everyone knows, loves and can sing along to. In addition, there will be surprises in the form of unusual covers and collaborations.

London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall provides its own magic to the evening. The great London concert venue will be transformed into a rock ‘n’ roll winter wonderland, complete with snowflakes, Christmas trees and sparkles aplenty. Reflecting the old-meets-new theme of the concert, the set and décor will mix the traditions of Christmases past with the flamboyance and fun of today’s festive season. It’s sure to be a truly memorable and not so Silent Night!
