Merriment & Misrule
Turn your Christmas upside down with the lords and ladies of misrule - sparring fidels, duelling percussion and soaring voices. The rebellious Joglaresa bring their sparkling subversion to Yuletide – amongst Medieval, Tudor and folk carols they perform medieval parodies celebrating wine and ale – Vinum bonum and Bring Us in Good Ale; songs from the 16th century Piae Cantiones – Angelus emittitur and Personent hodie, and their very own version of The Bore's Heed in Hande bear I.

'Get in festive mood with these brilliant musicians, whose infectious enthusiasm and peerless skill will leave you wanting to dance and sing
all the way home!' Spitalfields Festival
Interval Drinks!
Take advantage and pre-order your interval drinks at the bar before the start of the concert
