A Selection Of The UKs Finest Musicians Celebrate Their 20th Anniversary This Christmas In Aid Of Crisis.

 “Xmas Shindig #20”

On a fairly chilly Saturday one November in 1998, Andrea Britton stumbled upon Stephen Large busking out a Carly Simon number on his accordion in the middle of Greenwich market. It wasn’t long before she invited him into the infamous local haunt Time Bar to try out the new baby grand she’d just had delivered.

Fast forward twenty years and throw in years of Sunday residencies, pub gigs, tours, festivals, TV and Radio appearances and numerous national and international performances in incredible venues around the world, and you have South East London’s answer to Burt Bacharach and Dusty Springfield, arguably the most popular local performance couples of the last two decades.

Every Christmas these internationally successful musicians, who have gone on to entertain tens of thousands of international fans on some of the worlds most popular stages, joining forces with long-standing band member Tom Mann and friends to get your festive juices flowing they return to the place where it all started, Greenwich, South London.

Those in the know will be well aware of Stephen Large’s unique keyboard antics. Renowned for his crazy performances In his own outfit Lord Large, he has been at the helm of some of the UKs favourite artists, such as; Squeeze, Rebecca Ferguson, Duffy, Babyshambles, Caro Emerald, Paul Heaton, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas to mention but a few.

Miss Kiddy And The Cads are a glam 1940s swing band who gives the chart hits of the last three decades a vintage makeover with swinging beats and toe-tapping finesse.  From Bowie to Beyonce it’s a wholly immersive experience that combines the influence of jazz, cabaret, comedy and vintage, along with show-stopping vocals, authentic costumes, and an unquestionably talented tap dancer.
