Get festive with our Christmas Carol Concert

Candlelit Carol concert in medieval surroundings

By sharing the event between Castle and Church, the Carol Concert re-imagines Cromwell’s intended purpose of bringing the local community together to celebrate whilst also having a good old sing song.

Christmas Carol Concert: Saturday 30 November

In the Tudor period, when Tattershall College was a major religious institution (sadly almost nothing remains today), Margaret Beaufort, King Henry VII’s very powerful mother, took choristers from the college to sing elsewhere across the country - and Tattershall was in her sights.

This was not only a very high honour, but also proved the ability of the institution to produce such excellent singers. The tradition of song also continues at Tattershall by boasting the presence of John Taverner, legendary Renaissance composer, who taught music at the college for a short time.

Come and be part of the next generation of singing sensations at our own carol concert, or maybe it's just the case that you can’t feel Christmassy without belting out a tune or two?

It doesn’t really matter which camp you fall into, or if you just want to feel some festive vibes. Come join us for a very special and festive event that marks the beginning of the countdown to Christmas day.
