Jason explained: “Last year we had Christmas stolen from us. A lot of us had things booked and we wanted to spend the day with our families.

“I was looking forward to it over the summer and I love a Christmas concert. But some of the options at Christmas, you’ve either got panto or a formal Christmas concert.

“I wanted something in between where you can have a laugh, have a sing, bring your kids and bring your grandparents.”
