On Thursday 16th December, Shire Hall is hosting an evening of music, carolling and carousing in its historic courtroom with the Mellstock Band!
The Mellstock Band entertain with a unique combination of singing, instrumental music and spoken word, encompassing west gallery harmony, traditional songs, glees, dances, marches, poems and stories.
Christmas Frolics with the Mellstock band will be a celebration of dance, drink and misbehaviour, as carried on at Christmas in many villages until about a hundred years ago. Alongside the revelry are convivial harmony songs, rousing dance music, Thomas Hardy’s poetry set to local tunes, carols dedicated to bell-ringing and cider and much more.
