Halsway Christmas Carols Workshop

Saturday 12 Dec 9:30am–12:30pm, 2020

  • £8 adults
  • £3 children & students under 18. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult

This workshop is the first part of an all day Carol event. Come along for the whole day or part of the day. Learn traditional old English carols in four-part harmony in this enjoyable morning workshop.  Some of the carols will be local to us!

The singing of traditional carols dates back to the seventeenth Century, well before the Victorian Christmas which we know today. These traditional carols are characterised by simple, robust harmonies and catchy tunes. The tradition still survives in the area around Sheffield, and in Cornwall, Exmoor and Somerset.

If this puts you in the mood for Christmas, you can book for our Christmas Carvery Lunch (1pm – early booking recommended) and raise your voice as part of our afternoon Folk Carol Concert (3.30pm – free).

Who’s it For?

Singers of all levels of experience are welcome, as well as accompanied children. This is a relaxed workshop aimed to get the best from singers of all abilities. Carols will be taught by ear so there’s no need to be able to read music, but music will also be provided as well.
