Mr Speaker are also hosting and performing at a number of gigs in the run up to Christmas, kicking off on Saturday 1 December with the 'It's Christmastime' launch day and Letchworth Garden City Christmas light switch on. If you live in or around north Hertfordshire and can make it along to support the band at any of the events, please do.

As well as all of this, they are putting together an album of Christmas songs with contributions from other local bands, which can be purchased at any of their events or from David's Music in Letchworth. Sales of this album will also benefit the MS Trust.

The band have been getting fantastic support from local radio stations such as 106 Jack FM and BBC 3 Counties Radio who have interviewed them and added 'It's Christmastime' to their playlists. The track was also featured on the Guardian Music website.

There is a campaign on facebook trying to get “It’s Christmastime” into the charts for Christmas. Visit the page and join in!
