T Rextasy 'I Love to Boogie' 40th Anniversary Tour
8.00pm
Ipswich Corn Exchange, King Street, Ipswich, IP1 1DH
T Rextasy have now been performing around the world for over 20 years, a career that ironically outlives Marc's very own T Rex. The band is now accepted as the world's only official live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan & T Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc Bolan's family, estate, original ex-members of T Rex, and Bolan's catalogue management. The band has been described by many as beyond the boundaries of tribute.

Truly a rock'n'roll concert for all ages - If you would like to know exactly what a Marc Bolan concert was like in the 1970's, this show is for you!

The Apex, Charter Square, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, IP33 3FD, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 3FD
The Locrian Ensemble are firmly established as one of Britain's most popular touring groups. They have a host of television and film credits to their name and have recently topped the classical charts with their playing for Debbie Wiseman's BBC TV score of Wolf Hall.

They enjoy a formidable international reputation (Evening Standard). Their Christmas show is the hottest ticket in their calendar. In lavish period costume, and in front of an evocative candlelit setting, these charismatic performers perform favourites including carols, string medleys of familiar christmas tunes and seasonal surprises.

They are joined by the evergreen Jill Washington, West End star soprano of Phantom of the Opera, who sings tunes from Handel's Messiah to White Christmas, the 12 Days of Christmas and Walking in the Air, accompanied by shimmering strings and thrilling harp playing. This is the ideal way to get into the true spirit of Christmas. This magical evening will be the best Xmas present you can give!
