St Mary in the Castle

Raising vital funds for our inspirational programme of educational outreach.

Join us at St Mary in the Castle, Hastings at 3pm on Sunday 15th December for an afternoon of Christmas songs and music for all ages and tastes with internationally acclaimed singer, pianist and songwriter Joe Stilgoe.

We are delighted to welcome Joe and his band for an afternoon of Christmas joy to get you in the Festive spirit.

Joe Stilgoe releases his 2019 “Christmas Album” later this year, featuring Grammy nominated saxophonist Amy Dickson, the Canterbury Cathedral Girls Choir, iconic jazz musician Ben Castle (son of Roy Castle) and legendary comedian and actor Rob Brydon.

Joe Stilgoe is an internationally acclaimed singer, pianist and songwriter. He has created a fresh sound for jazz in the 21st century, known for writing songs that feel like they’ve been around for years, and adapting classics that sound as though they were just written. As a recording artist he has released 5 critically lauded albums, three of which have topped the UK Jazz chart. His latest album, launched in June 2019, is a new departure of style and genre. THE HEAT IS ON! is Joe’s unique interpretation of the soundtrack from the 1980’s, reimagined with a full 1950’s Big Band.

Son of songwriter and TV personality Richard Stilgoe and opera singer Annabel Hunt, Joe has become a true modern-day entertainer, known globally as a performer of wit, style and a level of musicianship which has seen him recognised as one of the best singer-pianists in the world. Regular star of BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night is Music Night and his own shows as presenter and performer, Joe has worked with some of the finest orchestras and bands in the world and regularly appears at renowned jazz club Ronnie Scotts.

Joe has been hosting Christmas specials at the Lyric Hammersmith with celebrity guests and musicians for many years and his Radio 2 show ‘Joe Stilgoe – Christmas At The Movies’ was the most popular show aired on Christmas Day 2018.
