Solstice concert

Celebrate Christmas and Midwinter with Richard Durrant & Family in a Winter Solstice Concert on YouTube and Facebook

Richard Shoreham beach

Streamed live from Richard’s home on Monday 21 December from 3pm, Richard will be celebrating the Winter Solstice with his four children, Rooney, Daisy, Django & Felix. They will also be joined on film by Amy Kakoura, Nick Pynn Brian Gulland.

The music will continue as the sun goes down on the shortest day of the year with guitar solos, six specially made short films and some great carols so you can join in with the singing.

Whatever has happened to us this year Christmas is still upon us and in this we are offered hope for the year to come. Please join us to mark the moment our planet carries us into the heart of the winter. We can pause together, think of our place in the scheme of things and feel the spirit of Christmas.’

Says Richard

Please buy a voluntary ticket of £10 to support this event. 

If you are unable to watch the concert live don’t worry –  the show will still be available to watch until 12th Night – 6 January 2021.

Thank you for your continued support this year. Let’s hope 2021 brings us all more opportunities to gather together and once again enjoy live performances of music and theatre.

As the days shorten and the year draws to an end Louise and Richard wish you all a very happy Christmas…

My song is done, I must be gone,

I can stay no longer here;

God Bless you all, both great and small,

And send you a happy new year.

Oh the Moon Shines Bright!

This year’s Candlelit Christmas Tour may have been reduced to a handful of gigs – but that doesn’t make these seasonal events any less special…

Included in the tour are four socially distanced shows at Ropetackle Arts Centre, Shoreham-by-Sea with two performances each day on 6 and 13 December.  

There will also be two, ticketed, live streamed performances from Theatr Clwyd in North Wales on Friday 11 December at 6pm and 8.30pm.

‘After the year we’ve all had it’s more important than ever to embrace the magic that hangs in the air at Christmas.’

Says Richard

We hope you will all join us for the series climax celebrating the Winter Solstice live-streamed from Richard’s studio on Shoreham Beach from 3pm on 21 December.

This finale gig will include the premiere of six short Christmas films produced for the Solstice.  We ask you to buy a voluntary ticket for this unique event.

Richard has chosen a wintry collection of guitar solos for each show during which he’ll be joined onstage by his four children Rooney, Daisy, Django and Felix to sing Christmas carols and wintry songs.  

There’ll also be ‘virtual’ appearances by singer Amy Kakoura, master fiddler Nick Pynn and medieval prog rock god Brian Gulland – pictured below.
