Pete Lawrence DJ Christmas Sessions 10 Dec 2013 (The Old Plough) This Saturday - 6 hour marathon DJ set from Braunston resident Pete Lawrence @ The Old Plough.

This Saturday features the return of the six hour marathon DJ set after the Wolfhampcote Christmas carols from Braunston resident Pete Lawrence at The Old Plough starting at 6pm.

Pete founded The Big Chill festival, celebrated for its 'boutique feel and best known for its musical diversity and for creating what is now known as the 'chill out' phenomenon. He also gave first festival opportunities to the likes of Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Goldfrapp, Zero 7 and Seasick Steve. He has DJ'd all over the world - from Tokyo to Sydney, Cairo to Siberia and was voted into Time Out magazine's Top 100 'movers and shakers'.

For Pete, a DJ set isn't just about dancing, it's more about creating a mood and taking the audience on a journey. Last year's set at The Plough started with choral, classical and seasonal tunes in a pub that was so packed that music couldn't really be heard above the hubbub of chatter. As the bar thinned out, Pete moved into playing soul, funk, 70s and 80s pop and rock later in the evening. His music excursions really do have something for everyone.

Why not pop down to the Plough on Saturday evening, for a mulled wine and mince pie after carols or if you fancy a dance, later in the evening. Musical excellence guaranteed. Admission is free.
