Multi-platinum, Brit award winning classical trio Blake will perform at The Grand as part of their multi-date Christmas tour on Thursday, December 15th.

Following the great success of their 2015 Christmas single with Dame Shirley Bassey, the group is embarking on a 13-date tour Christmas Classics.

Last Christmas saw Blake team up with national treasure Dame Shirley Bassey for a spectacular version of The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire), with accompanying appearances on The Graham Norton Show, Strictly Come Dancing, The One Show and many more.

The award-winning trio will be performing timeless Christmas songs including Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Frosty The Snowman and Let It Snow with the warmth that only their rich vocal harmonies can deliver. They describe the show as an “All out Yuletide journey, through warm cosy fireside moments in our finest Bing Cosby festive jumpers”, which will see big anthemic classics performed, amid rumours that snow will actually fall inside the venues.

It promises to be a spectacular evening, with the trio joined by fantastic choirs to back up their harmonies, as well as beautiful video projections of Christmas nostalgia. They’ll even be doing a virtual duet with Dame Shirley Bassey, projected on the screens behind.

Blake have an impressive CV of achievements, including several Number 1s, multi-platinum selling albums and more than 150 TV appearances, as well as having won a Brit Award for Album of the Year. Famous fans include Keira Knightley, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Will Smith.

So far this year the group have been busy touring their show Songs of Stage and Screen, as well as being the headline act for Henley Festival alongside Dame Shirley Bassey. In 2017 they will celebrate their 10th anniversary with a new album.

The trio tour constantly throughout the world and take part in a vast amount of charity work, from performing for the Queen and Prince Harry at the Festival of Remembrance and the launch of the Walking With The Wounded South Pole Challenge, to working with the Sing to Beat Breast Cancer Choir. Other charities they have supported include Help For Heroes, The British Legion and MIND. They have legions of fans worldwide, which has sent them on tours to the Philippines, South Korea, Barbados, Russia, and even at the White House in the USA.
