The Night Watch

Back then, people’s experience of winter was very different to ours: no central heating, often a shortage of fresh food, and no Christmas adverts on TV from July onwards.

Instead they had the very earliest known English song (about the winter weather), French renaissance dance tunes which became better known as Christmas carol tunes, and 17th century broadside ballads about festive drinking and the Christmas spirit. Expect period music, period instruments, period clothes and period jokes in Drive the Cold Winter Away, The Night Watch’s rolling and changing programme for the winter and Christmas season.
