A celebration of Christmas music, winter, cosy nights and spoken word.

HARK! is traditionally a celebration of music inspired by literature – and no holiday embodies that concept like Christmas. HARK! will be performing a specially selected set of songs based on festive and wintery tales, as well as a couple of Christmas classics. Benjamin Amos​, of North Eastern super-band Nel Unlit, graces us with tunes from his latest solo album, Christmas folk feast ​Joy. All beaming directly into your home via the magic of the internet, and hosted from the majestic Crown Street Library.

This event is accompanied by a ‘gig in a box’ featuring a programme with original linocut artwork from Darlington artist The Littlest Falcon and lyrics so audience members can sing along, as well as a mince pie or piece of Christmas cake, and a few other goodies. The Gig in a Box is free to all, subject to availability. Tracks will create and deliver these boxes to audience members, as well as have some stock available for collection from the library. We are also reaching out to organisations such as Food For Thought to distribute some of the boxes to the elderly, socially isolated and people on lower incomes.

*This event is suitable for ages 13+

Live stream starts 7pm on Facebook and YouTube –

Free to view – though a donation link will be available.
