Catch a group of folk legends this December on the IOW

If you love your British folk music you'll almost certainly want to catch Steeleye Span during their latest tour this winter.

The Wintersmith Tour in support of their 22nd studio album of the same name is coming to the Isle of Wight on December 6th, when they will grace the Shanklin Theatre.
 
The folk revival legends still have Maddy Prior at the helm, with the vocalist now more than a decade into her third stint with the group, which has been through its fair share of line-up changes over the years.

However, during that time they have maintained a distinctive sound and an avid following, and around half the seats for their IOW gig have already sold out, so you'll have to move fast if you want to be there to hear some of their new tunes as well as a few of their old classics.

Tickets are priced at £19.50 and can be booked instantly via the official Shanklin Theatre website, so there's no reason to miss out. Simply click on your desired seat and away you go. Tickets booked online can be collected from the box office on the day of the show, so there's no need to worry about forgetting to pack them for the crossing from the mainland. 

The Shanklin Theatre itself is something of an institution having started life in 1879. Today, it puts on a huge range of events to entertain locals and visitors alike, and you can catch everything from stand-up comedy to talks by famous faces.

Events in particular to make a date for in the coming weeks include An Audience with Michael Portillo; family panto fun with Rapunzel; and a performance of Agatha Christie's The Hollow.

So no matter what you're in the mood for this festive season, you'll be able to find something to make you smile at the Shanklin Theatre to really get you ready for Christmas.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801660188-ADNFCR
