Kate Rusby at Christmas

Kate Rusby

Part of Here for Christmas

All tickets remain valid for the new date.


Sadly the Kate Rusby at Christmas show due to take place at Sage Gateshead on Thursday 9 December 2021 will not be going ahead due to a band member testing positive for Covid.

However we are delighted that we have been able to reschedule the performance to next week on Friday 17 December 2021, once the affected performer has recovered & carried out the self isolation period required.

All tickets remain valid for the new date. If you would like to attend the new date you don’t need to do anything.

From Kate Rusby:

I am so very, very sorry but I have to announce that Damien has tested positive for Covid.  As Musical Director, he is integral to the performance which means that we do have to postpone our concert at Sage Gateshead on 9 December.  I am so, so sad and sorry for the inconvenience, and appreciate your support with the tickets you have bought.  But there is good news!

I’m delighted to say that we have been able to reschedule our performance to Friday 17 December 2021.  Your tickets will automatically be transferred but the box office will issue a refund if it is not convenient for you.

Our live stream, Jolly Holly Wrap Gig, will also still be going ahead this year on 21 December and I do hope that I will be able to see you virtually even if it’s not in person this year.

Loads of love and my apologies once again. Kate Rusby x ❤️🌈🎊🎄 

Forever proud to call herself folk singer, Kate Rusby’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience. Famously down to earth, Kate’s engaging personality and sharp, Yorkshire wit have further endeared her to concert goers everywhere for over a quarter of a century.

Kate’ s Christmas Tour – so wondrously captured on her Live at Christmas DVD – has, for many, become as much a part of the festivities as Christmas pudding itself! Warm and inviting, spicy and sparkly she and her marvellous band – joined as ever by a sublime brass quintet – embody the sounds and joyous spirit of the best Christmases ever! | Facebook | Twitter
