Food of Love are returning to their roots for this year’s Christmas show, with a swinging collection of classic and seasonal songs.

OVO Theatre Company’s house band will bring a little glitz and the glamour of the bygone era of jazz to the Maltings Arts Theatre, performing all the greats, both mellow and upbeat, such as White Christmas to Sleigh Ride, featuring Bing, Frank and Etta and Ella.

Young pianist Chris Maguire makes his OVO debut, accompanied by Will Franklin on trumpet and Ed White on clarinet, while a special selection of popular local OVO actors, including Lucy Crick, Kieran Cummins, Anna Franklin, Adam Nichols, David and Liz Widdowson and Alison Wright, will sing the night away.

Maltings Arts Theatre, 2, The Maltings, St Albans AL1 3HL, Saturday, December 17, 8pm. Details: 0333 666 3366
