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.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
This event takes place at Union Chapel, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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

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
Irish rockers hailing from Dublin, consisting of Steve Garrigan (vocals), Mark Prendergast (guitarist), Jason Boland (bassist) and Vinny May (drummer).
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.

The award-winning columnist and critic for the Times, Caitlin Moran was named the Observer’s Young Reporter of the Year at just 15. Shortly afterwards she began her journalism career on Melody Maker, penned a novel, and in 1992 she added television presenting to her CV, co-hosting Naked City on Channel 4 with Johnny Vaughan.
Caitlin has written about a range of topics, but perhaps her best known work has been the popular satirical column ‘Celebrity Watch’. In 2010 she won the British Press Awards’ Columnist of The Year Award, and Critic and Interviewer of the Year in 2011.
Caitlin is also the bestselling author of How To Be a Woman and produced a follow-up in 2012, entitled Moranthology, in which she expands on her first book’s somewhat limited subject matter to include such topics as Ghostbusters, David Cameron Looking Like Ham, Rihanna’s Cardigan and My Own, Untimely Death.

Radio presenter, writer, journalist and critic. He co-hosts the Radcliffe and Maconie Show on BBC Radio 2, and presents his own show (Freak Zone) on BBC 6 Music.
Stuart is also a respected author and the UK's best-selling travel writer of non-TV tie-in books and his Pies And Prejudice was one of 2008's top selling paperbacks. His other books include Adventures on The High Teas and Cider with Roadies.
In Hope and Glory, Stuart goes in search of the places, people and events that have shaped modern Britain.
Stuart Maconie tour dates
The alter ego of Simon Brodkin, Lee Nelson burst onto the scene clad from baseball cap to white trainer in sportswear logos and cheap-and-chunky bling, fag behind the ear and can of Stella in hand. Now suited and booted, a more thoughtful Lee has begun to engage with life outside his estate and is grappling with bigger issues, offering his unique spin on religion, politics and immigration.
'The funniest act I've seen in years' (Harry Hill)
