T01867045865 (TRWINCHESTER18)A celebration of the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth, and the birth, during her reign, of Christmas as we know it today. The Victorian Christmas was a time of magic, hope and goodwill to all people. Prince Albert introduced the Christmas tree to England in 1846, the first greeting cards were sent in 1861, Charles Dickens revelled in his seasonal stories, culminating in the greatest tale of all, A Christmas Carol. Plus Mrs Beeton was on hand to give advice on the culinary delights of roast turkey, plum puddings and mince pies! Celebrate the delights of Christmas past, in the company of Queen Victoria, Charles Dickens, Mrs. Beeton, Thomas Hardy, Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Gilbert and Sullivan. The festive spirit is enhanced by the familiar and much-loved music of Handel, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Vivaldi, Bizet, Scott Joplin and Debussy with traditional tunes and carols.Presented byClive Conway Productions. Performer Robert Powell. Performer Susan Jameson. Performer Clive Conway (flute). Performer Christine Croshaw (piano).
