The Christmas Hearth:
A Costumed Show with Early Instruments, Song and Spoken Word

For over twenty years The Mellstock Band has been entertaining audiences across the country. This winter they celebrate all things comfortable by inviting you to their Christmas fireside to enjoy a seasonal mix of jovial songs, stirring dance music and haunting carols linked together by carefully selected readings which tell the story of Christmas celebrations in a 19th-century English village. Better than a bowl of hot punch!

'the refreshing earthy sounds of The Mellstock Band – honest, unpretentious.'
'don't delay, pick up a phone and book to see them.' Boston Symphony Orchestra
Interval Drinks!
