Christmas Tree Sessions: Spiritualized + Band of Skulls + Fyfe Dangerfield + Josh Kumra + Kodaline + Summer Camp + Caitlin Moran + Stuart Maconie + Lee Nelson + Amy Key + Lauren Laverne + Guy Garvey + Myleene Klass
This intimate and inclusive evening will include all the magic of Christmas: the traditional tree, mulled wine, mince pies, audience sing-a-long, and the chance to customise your own bauble. The event is being held on Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day so everyone will be encouraged to wear a festive jumper and there will be a photo booth to capture revellers in their classic knitwear.
Christmas Tree Sessions supports Save the Children's 'No Child Born To Die' campaign, which will help give more children the nutritious food they need to help them fight killer diseases and keep them safe.
Guy Garvey, lead singer of Elbow and Myleene Klass are to collaborate for a unique one-off performance
The evening will be hosted by Lauren Laverne.
Formed out of the ashes of the sadly missed Spacemen 3. Spiritualized have consistently made music that epitomises the phrase 'Junkie Cool'. Amazing songs about life, death, love, sex, drugs and the big guy upstairs. Live they are incredible and could have anything from a small horn section to a full orchestra to back them up, and a pretty cool light show too.
Spiritualized tour dates
The London-based trio formerly known as Fleeing New York before changing their name in 2008. Band of Skulls are a garage rock sensation originally formed by three college friends: Russell Marsden, Emma Richardson and Matt Hayward. In late 2009 the track 'I Know What I Am' from their debut album 'Baby Darling Doll Face Honey' was chosen as iTunes' Single Of The Week.
Band of Skulls tour dates
Quirky but loveable guiLLeMoTs frontman Fyfe Dangerfield, who makes irresistibly catchy and uncompromisingly bizarre indie-pop. His alluring and enigmatic voice coupled with his charismatic approach to writing have made him a distinctive and well-loved star in the indie world.
Fyfe Dangerfield tour dates
Hailing from Swindon, Josh grew up listening to the music his father played – Dylan, Hendrix, and Simone. Picking up a guitar for the first time at the age of three, Josh self taught, and hasn't put it down since, playing at every bar and venue in his hometown and anywhere he could get to on twenty quids' worth of unleaded. Likened to a young Ray LaMontagne or Ben Harper, Josh is rapidly developing a name for himself as a gutsy and heartfelt young performer.
Josh Kumra tour dates
Currently maintaining an air of understated mystery (their Facebook bio states, merely, "we're four lads in a band"), Kodaline are a hotly tipped Dublin quartet. The band, who released their debut EP 'The Kodaline EP' in September 2012, debuted a new track 'The Answer' in November - the first to be taken from their next EP 'The High Hopes EP' which is due for release in March 2013.
Kodaline tour dates
Jeremy Warmsley branches out with a new indie-pop duo project featuring the soft vocals of Elizabeth Sankey. Fans of Slow Club and Joy Zipper should investigate.
Summer Camp tour dates

He is also a respected author, whose popular non-fiction books include "Adventures On The High Teas", "Pies And Predjudice" and "Cider With Roadies".
Stuart Maconie tour dates
Clad from baseball cap to white trainer in sportswear logos and cheap-and-chunky bling, fag behind the ear, can of Stella in hand this is the loveable rogue with his heart in the right place.
The alter ego of Simon Brodkin.
'The funniest act I've seen in years' (Harry Hill).
