A Clarty Christmas


A Celebration of the Great British Christmas in song and story

An evening of traditional Christmas songs, carols and tales from around the British Isles, presented in Victorian costume.

Mummers and Guisers, wassails and carols, songs from the pagan to the present day. Clarty Sough take a not too serious look at the traditions of the festive season with material ranging from the rarely heard to full throated carols for all to join in on.

There are songs from Twelfth Night plough plays, songs about hunting the wren and Christmas at sea, and if you want to know what really happened on "Christmas Day in the Workhouse" this is the place to be.

The show consists of 2 x 45 minute sets with a break for refreshments plus the option of massed carol singing to finish off as appropriate to venue. The audience receive complimentary carol booklets to take home and use over the festive season.

Available for folk clubs, arts centres, private and corporate functions.

Ideal for hotels and restaurants when combined with a festive meal.
