Can you remember when the spirit of Christmas was more important than receiving presents? When you really did dream of a White Christmas, or if you were really lucky you would find a six pence or a three penny bit in your Christmas pudding?
Well all those memories and many more, mixed with everyone’s favourite Christmas songs and carols will be on offer when the country’s most popular Christmas nostalgia show, Remember When at Christmas appears at The Ipswich Corn Exchange on Wednesday 27th November at 2.30pm. The show is produced and hosted by locally based former heavyweight television wrestling star Neil Sands, who is really looking forward to bringing the show to Ipswich for the very first time.
“The show is now in its seventh year of touring theatres, and for this new 2013 production we will doing a 30 date tour all around the UK from Devon to Cumbria, Hull to Liverpool and many stops in between. For the past two years we have taken the show to The Spa at Felixstowe, where last year it almost sold out, but with that now closed I am so pleased to be coming to The Corn Exchange, a venue close to my heart as I wrestled The Mighty Quinn there in 1981 for the heavyweight championship of the world.” said Neil.
Neil is joined by another local singer Annika Rands who having spent many years performing on some of the world’s finest cruise liners is now the newest addition to the show. Annika is joined by Hertfordshire’s Gemma Turner, who is very much in the mould of Katherine Jenkins.
This production brings a truly wonderful mixture of great songs from Rocking Around The Christmas Tree, Silent Night, The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, O Come All ye Faithful, Let It Snow, Jingle Bell Rock, Away In A Manger, Sleigh Ride, Winter Wonderland, Santa Baby and many, many more.
Over two hours of festive music and fun taking us all back to a time when Christmas was the most wonderful time of the year.
