Santa Claus is Coming to Liversedge

So, to continue the Christmas feel-good shenanigans, we wanted to give you this:

(The “Back-Story”) – On my birthday last year, Hope and Social played in the Church above our studio for the local schools’ Christmas Service. It was a very Christmassy affair, with singalong Christmas tunes, sleigh-bells and the usual kazoo solos. If you want you can download a zip file file rather than the mp3

Tomorrow (Sat 12th Dec.) we’re playing again and this time it’s public. It’s a minimum of £5 donation from here and it’ll raise money for the church roof too.

At our Home from Home…

It’s set to be a great night of Christmas cheer, audience participation and mulled wine. We like it so much here that we recorded this song for our album, live.


All proceeds go to the church roof fund, and as we are the downstairs tenants of the very hospitable Rev. Pitcher, we urge you to not only attend a great gig in these beautiful surroundings but also to go above and beyond when it comes to your donation. (I suddenly feel very “Vicar of Dibley”!)

Support comes courtesy Quiet Rebellion and Blackstone Edge.

We expect a pretty darn high demand for available places so if you can please Book Your Tickets in advance… if you can’t get down early, it’s a big old building I’m sure we can squeeze you in!

Come play out, or if not, please do share this and spread Santa’s love far and wide.



Join the discussion and tell us your opinion.

As a former resident of Cleckheaton and local of Heckmondwike I ought to know where this is – but I don’t (sorry, better on pubs than churches).

Where is this hootenanny occurring?

Is there a PayPal site for donations if we can’t get there for the show?
