A Very Naughty Christmas: The Second Coming...

Funnier, sexier, Christmasier!

Basically the opposite of Carols by Candlelight. #dontbringthekids

Put away the hymn books and candles; this Christmas is all about raunchy, unadulterated fun just for you. It’s the season of giving, after all.

A Very Naughty Christmas is the Christmas concert you didn’t know you had to see. Come with us into a Winter Wonderland like you’ve never known; full of political incorrectness, dirty language and a whole lot of skin. Come drink with your friends, be merry, and forget about those awkward family dinners.

This year, enjoy Christmas the way it was meant to be – ribald for your pleasure.
