Seasonal Songs & Stories from Dickens' London and Hardy's Wessex

A new Christmas show celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens


Saturday 22nd December

8.00 pm

Exuberant music, colourful costumes and period instruments make a MELLSTOCK BAND show an essential Christmas entertainment. With voices, violin, serpent, concertina, clarinet and oboe, they bring to rumbustious life the taverns, dance halls, workhouses and street singers of town and country during Christmas celebrations, as described by two of the greatest writers of the nineteenth-century.




"Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the Mellstocks" (Susan Segal, Riverhouse Arts)

Ta v much - I must try to make it. I'll bring rum, you sort out the bust ious stuff.

If I remember rightly from a Kirkpatrick similar bash at Xmas 3yrs ago, one could bring a picnic and dwinkies and sit on the wooden wall seat which runs right around the main hall?? (And one sometimes discreetly did a concomitant squeeze or too from box sitting in plastic shopping bag - he and Kpatrick family also had a few small breaks...... :rolleyes: )
