About this Event

Acclaimed musicians GreenMatthews (with special guest Jude Rees) 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, A Brief History of Christmas is a show guaranteed to delight the hearts of young and old.

The show takes in 600 years of music – featuring 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.

A Brief History of Christmas  is the perfect show for anyone looking to recapture the simple Yuletide delights of fellowship, laughter and good cheer.

“Eclectic and enjoyable - a bewildering array of instruments” (English Dance and Song)

“You guys are awesome!” (Bill Barclay, Director of Music at Shakespeare’s Globe)
