THURSDAY 01 JANUARY - 12:00 AM

Join The Mellstock Band for an uproarious celebration of dance, drink and general misbehaviour as carried on at Christmas in many villages until about a hundred years ago – along with sobering admonitions from puritans, parsons and angels.
Enjoy songs, tunes and tales from Hardy’s Wessex, performers in period costume, and a mix of early and modern instruments.
