Waving farewell to Chris Wood as he drove off into the wild Selby night brought our 2014 shows to a close. This has been, by some considerable stretch, our most successful ever year with dozens of sold out shows and a host of names who by rights should not have been playing a venue as intimate as ours! Stuart Maconie, Justin Currie, Lloyd Cole, Seann Walsh, Julia Fordham, Lee Nelson, Andy Fairweather Low, Alan Carr...the list goes on. The reason we are able to keep bringing these stars to Selby is because you wonderful peple keep buying tickets and supporting what we do. So thank you. Thank you very much indeed.

We take a little break from live shows now for a few weeks, but everything will fire up again on February 14th with four months of blues, comedy, folk, Americana, theatre, pop, poetry and more. The full season will be launched on Monday 5th January with brochures and e-mails arriving on your doorsteps and your inboxes between Christmas and New Year. Tickets will go on sale over the phone, online and in person from 10am. If you haven't already signed up for our mailing list, please do by popping your e-mail address into the box at the bottom of the page. You will get details of the new shows the moment they are announced as well as discount offers.

Until then though, I'd just like to wish everyone a rather brilliant festive season with superb jumpers, perfectly cooked stuffing and online orders which arrive in good time.

Chris Jones
