Hey! It’s that time again and as in previous years, all November, December and January profits from the sale of Tim’s beloved sentimental Christmas song, White Wine In The Sun, will go to The National Autistic Society (NAS) which provides support for people with autism and their families.
There are two versions; the 2009 solo version and the 2012 studio version, with strings, french horn and more.
Along with the UK iTunes link above, here are a few more of the places you can download the 2012 single internationally: iTunes , Amazon (UK), Amazon (US) and 7digital.
If you have it already, you may fancy gifting it, along with the socks, jocks or chocs…

Andy Karl will reprise his much lauded London performance as Phil Connors, a cynical Pittsburgh TV weatherman sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event in the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Caught in a time loop, he’s forced to relive the same day again and again…and again.
Further Broadway casting is yet to be announced.
The show reunites composer and lyricist Tim, with director Matthew Warchus, choreographer Peter Darling and designer Rob Howell, four of the Matilda The Musical creative team. They have joined forces with writer Danny Rubin to collaborate on this new musical based on his 1993 hit film.
Groundhog Day is being produced on Broadway by Matthew Warchus and André Ptaszynski for Whistle Pig, and Lia Vollack for Columbia Live Stage.

Groundhog Day enjoyed a hugely successful and critically acclaimed 10 week season at the Old Vic Theatre, London, in the summer of 2016.

alive at Wil’s home, he got all Wilosophical with Wil Anderson on Wilosophy, talking about death, beliefs, soup and more.

Tim’s heading to Santa Barbara, California, for one night only, to play at the Lobero Theatre on Sunday, October 30th at 8pm.
Joining Tim on stage as he performs a selection of satirical, hilarious and beautiful songs from his back-catalogue, will be a grand piano, polished to within an inch of its existence and a nice glass of red – for deftly wafting and sloshing during those animated talky bits…
