Hold Your Horse Is are holding their second ever bi-annual Christmas bonanza at the West End Centre in Aldershot on 17 December. A special show that features members of the Surrey and Hampshire music scene, as well as champs from further afield – the band have promised it will be a mega party. 2009’s show saw covers of the likes of ‘Buddy Holly’ by Weezer, ‘Hanging On The Telephone’ by Blondie and an emphatic finale of Andrew W.K’s ‘Party Hard’.

Set to take part in this year’s event are members of Reuben, FOE, Our Lost Infantry, Freeze The Atlantic, Stagecoach and Jealous Again, and Katie Malco will also be making an appearance. Tickets are a mere £6 and can be ordered from the West End Centre box office at http://www.westendcentre.co.uk or 01252 330040.
