Celebrating 10 Years of Communion

WHAT A NIGHT! Thank you so much to all those who came down and celebrated 10 years of Communion Music with us, and of course a huge thank you to all the artists who provided everyone with such incredible entertainment.

How do we even begin to sum it up? The ultimate party band, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats were our house band for the evening, and were joined by Communion artists past and present for one-off renditions of classic soul records. Joined by artists as diverse as Bear’s Den, Jack Garratt, James Bay, Rukhsana Merrise, Mumford and Sons and Dan Croll it was one amazing night - have a look at this set list:

For the grand finale all the artists took back to the stage, and were joined by special guests Mumford & Sons to perform a triumphant cover of The Beatles ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’.
