Whilst Christmas and the New Year are not going to be the same as usual. I take this opportunity of sending my best wishes that you have the best Christmas you can whilst staying safe and still managing to enjoy yourselves. Hopefully, as the New Year opens and the vaccine is administered to more and more of us things should get better and we can all have a happy New Year...

Enjoy the show
