Acclaimed historical musicians GreenMatthews (with special guest Jude Rees) present a festive romp through 600 years of Christmas music, songs and stories.

Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending in the 20th century, ‘A Brief History of Christmas’ is 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, ‘A Brief History of Christmas‘ is a show
guaranteed to delight the hearts of young and old.

The first half takes in 600 years of music – featuring music and songs played on archaic instruments such as cittern, shawm and rauschpfeife, as well as more familiar instruments such as guitar, flute, oboe and accordion. and all helped along by GreenMatthews’ trademark wit and humour. The second half is a thrilling retelling of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” – using song, drama and music to bring this classic story to life in a riot of sound and colour.

Price:
Adult: £15.00
Concessions: £11.00
Buy on line or on the door.
