A Brief History of Christmas19th December
Tickets: £14, £13 concessions
A Christmas feast of music, fellowship, laughter and good cheer.
Acclaimed musicians GreenMatthews present a festive romp through 600 years of Christmas music, songs and carols.
Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending in the 20th century, join us for a whistle-stop tour of the origins of our midwinter festivities, featuring long-forgotten songs and tales as well as some familiar and well-loved carols. Music will be played on archaic instruments such as cittern, shawm and rauschpfeife, as well as more familiar instruments such as guitar, flute, oboe and accordion and will be accompanied by GreenMatthews' trademark wit and humour.
