Yuletide! Matlock Music Society

December 1, 2023 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Wheeldon Hall
Matlock DE4 5NA

This concert is hosted by The Matlock Music Society but tickets are available to non-members.

PIVA will be performing their popular Yuletide! show, celebrating the festive season by performing seasonal music and songs from Tudor times. Winter, in the 16th century, could be a harsh time with long nights and little fresh food, but the Twelve Days of Christmas were filled with feasting, music, dancing, singing, games and revelry.  It was a time of entertainments, wassailing and mumming on the village green, masques and plays at court.  PIVA will be capturing a flavour of these times by playing and singing music of the period and telling tales from the time.

The evening will be a perfect way to drive away the cold, dark nights of winter and prepare you for the Christmas festivities.

The performance consists of 2 x 45 minute sections.  There will be an interval of approximately 15 minutes.
