CANCELLED: Awake Arise

with Lady Maisery + Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith

Christmas at Kings Place

Due to circumstances related to the current COVID-19 crisis, we’re sorry to announce the cancellation of tomorrow’s Awake Arise show, both in-hall and online.


Five of the English Folk scene’s most inventive artists bring you a Christmas show celebrating the riches of our varied winter traditions.

Following a rapidly sold-out Hall Two show in 2019 and a special online stream in December 2020 with record audience, Awake Arise returns to Kings Place with a festive performance in Hall One.

In an unmissable collaboration, five of the English folk scene’s most inventive artists bring you Awake Arise – A Christmas Show For Our Times; celebrating the riches of our varied winter traditions and reflecting upon the hope and resilience in music and song that can bring joy to us all in the darkest season.

Award-winning trio Lady Maisery (Hannah James, Rowan Rheingans and Hazel Askew) have for nearly a decade produced ‘some of the most exquisite, thrilling vocal harmony work in the English folk scene’, The Guardian.

The beguiling musical partnership of Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith complete the powerful line-up, bringing the outstanding vocals, sensitive instrumentation and powerful social conscience that has won them widespread critical acclaim.

‘Rousing stuff’ The Observer

This online event is a live stream only and will not be available on demand.
