FROM music to a murder mystery night, as Christmas edges closer and closer Salisbury Arts Centre is offering alternative events throughout the festive season.

  • A perfect blend of Berlin cabaret, French jazz and storytelling is exactly what can be expected from the gypsy cabaret and swing quintet Moscow Drug Club, with members bringing their after-hours inspired jamming sessions to the city on December 17 and 19.

Combining original material with masterpieces by the likes of Jaques Brel, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Eartha Kitt, the group delivers an intoxicating and intimate musical experience for all who enter. Both performances will start at 8pm.

  • From December 10 until 12 It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder will be bringing three evenings of whodunnit mystery and mischief to Salisbury Arts Centre, all with a festive twist. Santa and his friends will be leading the performances each evening from 7.30pm, as spectators try and solve the mystery alongside a three-course Christmas-inspired meal.
  • On December 20 a special and seasonal Barnstormers comedy performance will bring Andy White, Dan Evans and Steve Gribbin to the stage. The line-up will showcase a selection of impressions, sharp lyrics and festive anecdotes and observations. The show will begin at 8.30pm.
  • Returning to more Christmas- focussed activities, craft lovers can enjoy wreath making on December 5 and Christmas print making on December 14.
