Christmas in Mellstock! 

Follow the Mellstock Band as they go their Christmas rounds in deepest Wessex, encountering strange visitors, pious beasts, wrathful squires and sweaty dancers. There are supernatural moments, harmonious song and curious musical instruments, all depicted in the wonderful words of Thomas Hardy and William Barnes.

The Mellstock Band return to their roots in a show built around the descriptions of Christmas festivities in the works of Thomas Hardy and his friend, the Dorset dialect poet William Barnes. As always the band perform in costume, with village band instruments of the nineteenth century including fiddle, clarinet, concertina and serpent.
