Guest of Rick Wakeman

Rick's Musical Tales of Christmas Details from Paul Chandler RWCC

Jo & I (RWCC) are delighted that Rick Wakeman will once again be coming to Marlborough to perform two Christmas concerts this year. In addition to the concerts, we will also be holding the RWCC Christmas Party at The Marriott Hotel in Swindon.

The dates for the concerts are Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th December and as before, these will be staged at The Marlborough College Memorial Hall. ( Please DO NOT contact Marlborough College regarding these concerts ).

Saturday, 8.00pm ( bar open from 6.30pm )

Sunday, 7.30pm ( bar open from 6.00pm )

Lunch Party, Noon ( bar from 11.30am )

The RWCC Party will be held at The Marriott Hotel in Pipers Way, Swindon at noon on Sunday 20th December. The lunch party is something that my wife Jo & I lay on for Rick's fans. Last time we did this, 225 fans sat down to a traditional Christmas lunch with Rick at The Marriott Hotel in Swindon. Rick sets up a keyboard and all his kids and grandchildren are there. Father Christmas turns up and hands out presents to the children. It's just great !

We are very excited to be able to confirm that performing with Rick at the concerts will be Gordon Giltrap, The English Chamber Choir, Jemma Wakeman, and subject to their commitments, Oliver and Adam Wakeman have expressed their desire to attend.

This year, we will have a website, ( still under construction ), from which you should be able to purchase tickets online with a credit / debit card. The website can be found at and we thank Gregg Marshall for all his efforts over the past years for our web presence. We can also accept payment by cheque, or, as a slight alternative to the online store, by Paypal. Anyone wishing to pay by Paypal should email us at giving us your email address and we will send you a request for the money.

Concert tickets cost £27.50 and Party tickets cost £37.50

Now, here lies a snag. Paying by card or Paypal incurs fees and we cannot absorb these. Adding the charges and postage, we will have to charge £29.00 for concert tickets and £39.35 for party tickets when using the website or Paypal. We are more than happy to accept cheques, but Lloyds TSB charge us 30p to pay in a cheque so we would ask you to add 30p to your total, and of course you will only pay £27.50 and £37.50 respectively assuming you include a SAE. Cheques payable to Moonraker Events please.
