Annie Humphrey’s Ultimate Christmas Music Guide For Southend


It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

For live music especially! Christmas parties are in full flow, as are the drinks, tinsel adorns all of our beloved boozers and the weekends are full of fun, dancing and the sound of music.

We want to give you the ultimate Christmas gig guide, to help you plan your December evenings with your friends and family and to help you get your dose of festive entertainment.

But remember – drink responsibly, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE, and most importantly, do not crash into the band’s equipment. This is VERY important!
