While some may say it’s too early to think of Christmas, patrons of The Regal Theatre Stowmarket obviously don’t because tickets for Neil Sands Christmas Memories afternoon festive nostalgia show booked for Friday 15 December sold out almost four months in advance prompting theatre manager Bethany Couch and producer compere Neil Sands to quickly add an extra date.

“We are so pleased that Neil’s shows are so popular here, they spread so much joy and happiness, and fortunately he had a  cancellation for the day before so we’ve added Thursday 14th December and have already sold over 140 tickets for the new date.”

This unforgettable afternoon of nonstop nostalgia, filled with more songs & carols more stunning costumes and more festive fun than ever before, taking you back to the time when Christmas was the most wonderful time of the year and is filled with more than 60 of everyone’s favourite Christmas songs & Carols. So after Rocking Around The Christmas Tree, you can watch Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, or take a Sleigh Ride to a Winter Wonderland to the sound of Jingle Bells, meeting Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer and Frosty The Snowman on the way, before dreaming of A White Christmas.

Then be transported back to a heart-warming Victorian Carol Concert including Silent Night, Oh Come All Ye Faithful, Deck The Halls, Away In A Manger, Ding Dong Merrily On High and so many more including  a rousing version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. Wrapping everyone in the true spirit of Christmas. It wouldn’t be Christmas without pop hits like Slade’s Merry Christmas Everybody, Elton’s Step Into Christmas, Wizards I Wish it Could Be Christmas Every Day, and Shakin Steven Merry Xmas Everyone. The festive hits just rock on and on.

Joining Neil for this feast of festive music & fun are two amazing talented young ladies with outstanding voices. Both Babette Smith and Sophie Pinsent have graced many West End stages. Together they bring the looks and vocals of a pair of beautiful Christmas Princess, and their renditions of classical songs like Oh Holy Night and Walking In The Air are show stopping. With backing from the very talented Golden Times, this really is an afternoon filled with pure Yuletide magic.

Described as“Like A Sparkly Christmas Card Come To Life” with its shimmering stage set, beautiful Christmas trees, glittering fairy lights, and even falling snow. Mixed with over 40 stunning costumes, this is the perfect pre-Christmas treat, guaranteed to having you singing- along from start to finish, bringing back many happy memories of Christmases past and warming your heart on the coldest winter’s day.
