A Victorian Christmas

2nd December 2014

A Victorian Christmas

A Victorian Christmas is a fun and festive celebration of the Yuletide our ancestors would have known. Following a highly successful tour in 2012 and 2013, acclaimed historical entertainment company "Blast From The Past" invite you to join them at Richmond Retirement Village Northampton.

The cast of musicians and actors invite you to join them for some of your favourite carols (with songsheets provided) as well as introducing you to some more obscure but no less beautiful festive songs from the 19th century. They also perform a festive masked play based upon a traditional English folk tale.

Finally, there’s a Christmas tale of the court of King Arthur – a figure revived in the Victorian era by authors and poets such as Scott and Tennyson. Featuring damsels in distress, deeds of chivalry, an epic quest and of course a happy ending the tale is told in two parts across the two halves of the show.

It is a show guaranteed to delight and enthral audiences from young to old. Veering effortlessly from high drama to low comedy, from delicate melodies to full-throated harmonies

Date: 2nd December

Time: 7.30

Cost: £8 per ticket

Madam Mayor.

Lynne Griffin, Village Manager remarked “It has been a wonderful morning and everyone
thought the children sang beautifully. I would like to thank them and Mr Prince
