Band line-up
Libby Hammer Quintet

“Joy to the Ellington, the Libby Hammer Quintet has come! Let earth receive her swing! Let every heart prepare by buying tickets well in advance and the audience and the staff members sing, and the audience and the staff members sing, and the audience and the sta-a-a-a-aff members sing!”

If you can forgive the above sacrilege, then you’ll enjoy Libby’s Christmas concert. It has become an institution at the Ellington, this being the eighth year in a row that her quintet has brought their fun and swinging brand of Christmas jazz to holiday season lovers. 

And although we admit there might be the occasional touch of tongue-in-cheek bah-humbug or festive innuendo woven into the evening’s proceedings, you’ll find that this hand-picked program of Christmas songs provides a heart-warming balance between merry irreverence and poignant reflection. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be glad you came out instead of staying home to wrap presents.

There are only bar tickets left (this is me checking the tickets sales on 5 November - how does this happen!) so my advice is to get your bar tickets now, wear comfortable shoes, but also get there nice and early so you can score a bar stool. Don't tell anyone I told you.

Tickets for Saturday 22nd
Tickets for Sunday 23rd
Tickets for Monday 24th - eeeee, one more sleep!
