Mediaeval Baebes

December 19, 2023

This gig is for a seated audience.

After the success of last year’s ‘MydWynter’ tour and dark seasonal album, the classical chart-topping choir will be weaving its story-telling magic once again this Christmas.

Accompanied by a dazzling array of exotic and period instruments; carols, traditional folksongs, and innovative settings of ancient and romantic poetry will be revealed in a spirited performance of beguiling choral music,

When a group of friends broke into a graveyard over 25 years ago to sing mediæval songs and make merry; no one could have predicted the epic journey they were embarking on. Over a quarter of a century later, the Mediaeval Baebes have released 11 studio albums and won an Ivor Novella Award for their performance on the BBC serialization ‘The Virgin Queen.’ They have also received 2 Emmy nominations, and a Royal Television Society award alongside composer Martin Phipps, for their soundtrack to ITV’s hit period drama, ‘Victoria’. The Bæbes enjoy regular radio plays from ardent fan Iggy Pop, and most recently, electronic duo ‘Orbital’, inspired by their dark take on nursery rhymes, featured Bæbes vocals on single ‘Ringa Ringa, the lead track on their top 10 album ‘Optical Delusion’

Established as one of the most successful female-led, early music and folk ensembles in Europe; lush, ethereal harmonies will transport the listener through a myriad of ancient and forgotten languages.

Prepare to be entranced and uplifted as you immerse yourself in the enchanted realm of Mediæval Bæbes. Join us!

All tickets £25.
Doors open 7.30pm, starts 8pm.
