Amber Run at Exeter Phoenix, 13/01/2017

I love live music. The energy and anticipation when waiting to see the song that you were listening to in your bedroom actually performed live contribute to your sense of excitement.

After a shoddy 2016, my Christmas cheer levels were running alarmingly low this week. So, as Storm Angus battered Exeter on Monday evening, I took to the Exeter Phoenix to catch the BBC award winning Christmas extravaganza aptly named ‘The Lock In Christmas Carol’. And I can tell you, it was a one of a…
