Hackney Colliery Band: Christmas sale - 15% OFF all of our merch

Hi everyone

If, like us, you are in the northern hemisphere at the moment*, chances are things have got a bit chilly recently. So, to help give you a warm feeling inside, we are running a special 15% discount across our entire merch line with the offer code HCBRRR

Not only that, but we've also just put together some very special new packages, meaning that you already get amazing discounts on special edition double vinyl/T shirt or CD/T shirt combos. Perfect for the HCB fan, or better still, soon to be HCB fan in your life. Or, indeed, you. Spoil yourself, eh?

And of course, as ever, you get the extra warm feeling that you are supporting independent musicians, and cutting out the middle man. Seriously, you wouldn't believe the difference in what comes back to us between a direct purchase and a purchase via one of the big resellers. So your direct support really helps us. And as a 9-piece touring instrumental band, that support is absolutely crucial to help us keep doing our thing...

Oh, and if you're not feeling warm enough inside yet, remember that all of our T shirts and babygrows (yep, we have babygrows!) are Fairtrade organic cotton. And super comfy.

HCB with Sophie Ellis-Bextor, featuring dance cameos from TWO astronauts, Jim Al-Khalili, Dara O'Briain and Brian Cox.

Meanwhile, check out this new video of us performing with Sophie Ellis-Bextor at Brian Cox and Robin Ince's Compendium of Reason at the Hammersmith Apollo at the beginning of the month (featuring dance cameos from TWO astronauts, countless world famous scientists, some of the country's leading comedians, and led by Dance Captain Charlotte Church. It was that sort of night).

And, of course, check out our 2018 dates, including our massive show at the Forum in London on 16th February.

Brass out!

*If you are in the southern hemisphere, just remember that the warm feelings described here don't actually warm you up, they just make you feel good. But our T shirts, vinyl, CDs and babygrows are all super cool, so there is plenty for you with your lovely hot weather, too. If in doubt, remember that the warm/cool thing is really just a bit of word play, and our products neither warm you or cool you, but are all excellent. Sorted?

T shirts
Our Fairtrade, organic cotton T shirts are available in a range of colours and adult and kid sizes. Check 'em out!

Yep, it's true, we have babygrows. Available in long sleeved, or short sleeved in hot pink or blue, these are super comfy and hardwearing organic, Fairtrade cotton.
