Dancing, Carolling and Carousing in English Tradition 

THE MELLSTOCK BAND invite you to join them in an uproarious celebration of dance, drink and general misbehaviour as carried on at Christmas in many villages until about a hundred years ago - along with sobering admonitions from puritans, parsons and angels. Alongside the revelry are convivial harmony songs, rousing dance music, Thomas Hardy’s poetry set to local tunes, carols dedicated to bell-ringing and cider, glees from the singing-masters, and the Devil’s own tunes.

A costume performance with early & modern instruments.


Location The Unicorn Theatre, Abbey Buildings, Abingdon, OX14 3HZ
£15.00 (under 18 & students - £12.00)
