Kylie - Kylie Christmas
In 2015, pop royalty Kylie Minogue released her first Christmas album Kylie Christmas. The album is a perfect accompaniment to Christmas celebrations with immaculate production and vocal performances, as well as a couple of Christmas surprises in the form of duets with Frank Sinatra, Iggy Pop and James Corden. It also features her hugely popular rendition of Eartha Kitt’s 'Santa Baby', originally released in 2000.

During this festive period, Sophie has just started her Christmas Kitchen Disco tour again and with that comes new merchandise such as Scarfs, Tea Towels, Mugs T-Shirts and Tote Bags plus her Live At The London Palladium album on Exclusive Vinyl and CD.
