Join Jim Causley in celebrating the Christmas season as he entertains you with lesser known West Country carols, medieval and secular carols from around the British Isles, his own settings of moving Christmas poems by his relative, the late Cornish poet Charles Causley as well a gurt dollop of festive fun with songs of over-indulgence and even a spot of panto too!
If you are feeling a little dismayed with the over-commercialisation of ‘Christmas present’ then join Jim for a journey through Christmas past that will be guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit!
