Friday Roundup: Singin' in the ... Snow

the best way to catch up with what's been happening this week in the world of Jamie Cullum and beyond! 


As a few snowflakes fall on this isle we call Britain, panic ensues and normal life crashes to a halt. But panic not! Just get yourself a hot water bottle and curl up on the sofa to catch up with all the news from Mr Cullum.

Jamie visited Norway this week, a country that actually knows how to deal with real snow! He didn't give anything away but a photo posted by a member of his team (click here) gave us a clue and led to speculation that he was shooting a video, something he had mentioned in his end of year video message. We will have to wait and see of course, but it is always fun trying to guess what is happening whilst we wait for news!
