AWARD-WINNING St Albans group Enter Shikari have just announced a Christmas homecoming show at the Forum in Hatfield.

The alternative metal band will play the University of Hertfordshire's new auditorium on Saturday, December 19.

Formed in 2003, the post-hardcore quartet started out playing at the Pioneer and The Horn in St Albans.

They soon built up a reputation for their wild and energetic gigs and in November 2006 became only the second unsigned act to sell out the 2,000-capacity London Astoria.
