Winter Wassail

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Four special performances from the world-renowned Gabrieli Consort & Players in an uplifting musical celebration of the New Year.

Winter Wassail alludes to the ancient custom of coming together to drink from the wassail bowl at the turn of the year.

Gabrieli Consort & Players will present an entertaining programme of seasonal pieces inspired by words from Shakespeare, Hardy and Chaucer, to evoke medieval, Elizabethan and Victorian eras.

Experienced Globe actor Peter Hamilton Dyer will join Gabrieli to perform the selection of readings.

Popular and energetic, this family-friendly programme will be presented in two concise half hour acts, giving plenty of room for 'wassailing' over mulled wine and hot food in the break.

  • Sat 2pm & 5pm; Sun & Mon 4pm
  • £5-£30
