Christmas Social Evening—A Tudor Christmas

This year our Christmas gathering will have a Tudor theme, with entertainment from the accomplished early music group Hexacordia. for more information visit their website http://www.hexachordia.com

We have this year the highly-talented early music group Hexachordia to provide us with ‘A Tudor Christmas’ programme.  There are naturally costs in that and we are making the effort to widen invitations through other local history societies.  We expect therefore that the social to be well attended.  If you want to come therefore please send David Smith your reply slips from the Almanack or from attached leaflet with cheques now.  Do not rely on coming without booking on the night.  I would not want any member to miss out because we are booked up.  The charge for members is £8, for non-members £10.

Christmas Social – A Georgian Christmas, with Bedford Gallery Quire, Tuesday 10th December

Its that time of year, the Christmas festive season is fast approaches again. Once more we have a super programme lined up for our Christmas social.  The Christmas social is undoubtedly one of the sheer joys of this society, so do make an effort to come along.  You will not be disappointed.  And by all means bring friends with you.  

This year The Bedford Gallery Quire, will be providing the musical entertainment. They are part of the movement to resurrect the folk tradition, coined ‘West Gallery Music’ by Thomas Hardy, The Quire was formed in 2003 and is a group of singers and instrumentalists performing musical pieces from the ‘West Gallery’ period, around 1700 to 1850. West Gallery music is often seen as an anarchic musical attribute of the parish church until reforming Victorian clergy suppressed them in favour of the more governable, surpliced, choirs singing in the chancel that we know today.  Besides playing fiddles and flutes they will be performing traditional music on some less familiar instruments including flagelettes, an ophicleïde, and a serpent – a rare sight indeed.  

We will again be providing sandwiches, etc., as well as drinks, but members are welcome to bring additional seasonal fare.  It would be helpful if you haven’t already done so , it you would book as soon as possible.  This enables us to tell how many spaces available for non-members.  David Smith will be there on Tuesday to take bookings and your £5.00, or send him a cheque with form in the Almanack, or at very least email him at info@huntslhs.org.uk to let him know you are coming and pay on the night.
