203Folk music favourite Jez Lowe is returning to County Durham to perform his annual Christmas show.

Fresh from a solo tour of North America the BBC Folk Awards 2015 nominee, his multi-talented band The Bad Pennies, and special guest Benny Graham, will bring Mistletoe On Tyne to Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Wednesday 16 December.

Their unique take on the festive season is part folk concert and part music-hall revue, with new and old seasonal songs, humour and music done the way only northerners know how.

 Mistletoe on Tyne takes place at Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Wednesday 16 December at 8pm.
