Former music hall singer turned elderly rap star and purveyor of her own brand of RnB Artificial Hip Hop, Ida Barr is leaving her retirement home behind this Yuletide to bring you a ‘flava’ of Christmas in this interactive festive delight.

Get yourself comfy with a glass of warm sherry and a box of Quality Street, and enjoy some fresh rhymes and urban licks from ‘the People’s Pensioner’. With live mixing from hot young DJ Godslove, special guest Magician Extraordinaire Mark Raffles and featuring Comedy Ingenue Jess Robinson, a few rounds of Bingo for top (Poundstretcher) prizes and seasonal sing songs, this is a real Christmas cracker.
