The Trininty Arts Centre has partnered with That’ll Be The Day, which is approaching its 35th year, to stream the show live for audiences at home over the festive season.

Craig Sanders, Trinity Arts Centre manager, said: “We are thrilled to have partnered with That’ll be the Day to deliver this brand new Christmas show online direct into people’s homes this December.

“The show is supported with funding from Arts Council England and what is great is that up to £4.25 per stream will go to help support the Trinity Arts Centre through these challenging times.

"Don’t miss your chance to catch That’ll Be The Day Christmas Special on December 9, and book your tickets now.”

The pre-recorded show includes the best pop Christmas classics and traditional Christmas songs along with hilarious comedy routines.

Plus, producer and director, Trevor Payne, and some of the cast will be live online on the evening, pre-show, during the interval and after-show to answer questions, chat and share a virtual sherry online.

Trevor said: “We are very much looking forward to working on this exciting project.

"A lot of people find themselves stuck at home in the lead up to Christmas and these are very challenging times for everyone.

“We are asking fans to dress as if they're going to the theatre and make an evening of it to help everyone get in the festive mood and we are hoping to bring a little bit of Christmas magic to them, in the only way that we can, for now.”

For many, the That’ll Be The Day Christmas Special is the essential start to their festive season.

Join some of the cast online for a rollercoaster sleigh ride through the ‘golden’ age of rock and roll and pop and a sparkling mix of Christmas hits, fun and nostalgia with that guaranteed ‘festive feel good’ factor.
