'Village Carols'

When our music disappeared from the churches the carols lived on in some public houses in the north of England where they are still sung at Christmas today. We introduced them in Bedford in 2018 at an informal 'Village Carols' event where we played and sang the music as our forefathers did in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

It was great fun and we're back again in 2019! Come and join us.
