A Victorian Christmas

Please join us for ”A Victorian Christmas”, our Rural Arts Touring event

is a show guaranteed to delight and enthrall audiences from young to old.”

A Victorian Christmas is a festive exploration of the Yuletide our ancestors would have known. Acclaimed historical theatre company Blast From The Past invite you to join them for an evening of music, song, stories and drama from the time of Dickens and Hardy. All cast members perform in full Victorian dress with authentic musical instruments and props.
Featuring the musical talents of Chris Green and Jude Rees as well as Sophie Matthews the show includes all of the well-known Victorian carols such as ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’, ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ and ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’. Song-sheets are provided for the audience to join in and there are also some more obscure but no less beautiful festive songs from the English folk tradition, some of which have not been heard in over 100 years and have been painstakingly researched by the cast.
The show also contains a Christmas Mummer’s Play (one of the forerunners of pantomime) featuring a battle between St George and the villanous Turkish Knight, presided over by Father Christmas himself (dressed in green robes, as would have been the case in Victorian England!)
Finally, internationally-acclaimed storyteller Andy Jennings unfolds the mediaeval tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Written by an anonymous poet in the 14th century, it was lost for centuries before its rediscovery in a private library at the start of the Victorian era. Set at the court of King Arthur over Christmas, its themes of quest and romance proved a hit with Victorian audiences and in Andy’s hands it will thrill and delight modern audiences as well!

‘A Victorian Christmas’ is a fast-moving, warm-hearted show that will appeal to audiences of all ages looking to recapture the true spirit of Christmas.

Entry price – £7 adults, £6 conc, £4.50 child – 20% of ticket sales are donated back to hall funds
