Sam Ryder's Christmas bus is rolling into South Bank

12 th December 2023

Sam Ryder is becoming Sam-ta Claus to launch his new Christmas song 'You're Christmas To Me' in South Bank with a free pop-up gig on Saturday 16 December.

The Eurovision star is bringing his festively decorated Sam-ta's Christmas Grotto Bus to the Queen's Walk next to Southbank Centre for the afternoon, before heading off to Manchester for another Christmas performance on Sunday.

It's set to be a feel-good festive afternoon with opportunities to write Christmas cards, decorate cookies and take photos with Sam himself at a meet and greet before the star performs.

Asked by if the famously blinging singer will be wearing a Santa suit for the occasion, Sam said: "Haha, of sorts. I might not go the full hog, but there’ll be festive elements for sure. There'll be some kind of yuletide adornment... Come down for some chocolate cookies and rock ’n’ roll - and a performance. It’s gonna be wicked!"

When and where can I find Sam-ta's Grotto?

Sam-ta's Grotto Bus will be parked up on the Queen's Walk from 12pm-6pm. The gig is Free!
