Event Details

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

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, this is a show guaranteed to delight the hearts of young and old. It features 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 – all helped along by GreenMatthews’ trademark wit and humour.

“Eclectic and enjoyable – a bewildering army of instruments” English Dance and Song.
“You guys are awesome!” Bill Barclay, Director of Music at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Tickets £15, Members £12.50, Under 18s £10
