11 years ago, singer-songwriter John Reilly and Musical Director Lewis Nitikman played their first ever ‘Christmas Festival of Music’ concert at Sheffield Cathedral to an audience of around 200. Since then, it has become an iconic Sheffield tradition This year, we are raising the bar even higher !! We are hugely excited to announce a very special guest, none other than John Parr, of ‘St Elmo’s Fire’ fame !!
The concert will once again take place in the Octagon Centre at Sheffield University and John & Lewis will also be joined by Stannington Brass Band, Janine Dyer with Sheffield Community Choir, Tenor Gareth Lloyd, Soprano Emily Robinson and members of the Acoustic Angels.
Tickets are also available from Elaine 07918 556552, or from the Design Studio on Ecclesall Road Sheffield. Children under 10 years £5 when accompanied by an adult.  Seats this year will be numbered and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
