The Christians are still in fine voice

Where: The Stroud Subscription Rooms

When: Friday, February 1, 8pm

Renowned for an endless string of soulful yet socially aware hits, The Christians enjoyed huge acclaim in the late 80s and early 90s both in the UK and Europe.

They often confused people with their band name (in fact just the brothers' surname with absolutely no religious connotation!).

The Christians have produced hits such as Forgotten Town, Ideal World, Born Again, Harvest for the World, What's in a Word, Hooverville, Words, Father, The Bottle and many more.

Still headed by enigmatic lead singer Garry Christian (who very much deserves the Daily Mirror's description of him as having "one of the finest voices in pop") who has only gained in vocal stature (and wit) over the years.

The band are enjoying a revival, currently touring successfully in the UK and Europe playing their well known back catalogue and one or two favourites selected from newer albums.

Catch them on tour and find out why Chris Evans said "it was the best gig I've ever been to".

Tickets are £24 and available from the Subscription Rooms box office on 01453 760900 or online at www.subscriptionrooms.org.uk/whats-on/the-christians/
