Shakespeare's Singing Advent Calendar- December 9th

Join in with the Shakespearean festivities on the ninth day of advent

Katie Neville

Shakespeare’s Birthplace has been beautifully decorated for Christmas and the table prepared for a Yuletide feast of Tudor proportions. At the centre of the Bard’s blowout family meal stands the Boar’s head and actor Martin Smith has been inspired by its arrival to offer up his own unique serenade. The Boar’s Head Carol is part of an ancient tradition of carol singing and was sung in Shakespeare’s England at this time of year. Celebrate the countdown to Christmas every day until the 24th of December with Shakespeare’s Singing Advent Calendar at shakespeare.org.uk
