With uplifting vocals and a torch lit procession, The Mediaeval Baebes will wind their way magically towards All Saints Church in Ryde, on the Isle of Wight, on Wednesday 6th December.

Set to enchant the audience right from the very start, families, musicians and reenactors are invited to enhance the procession in whatever way they enjoy. Bring a drum, a lantern, or dress up and frolic, as this immersive experience sets the tone for the magical evening to come. Join in the pomp and pageantry, or just experience the torch lit spectacle before it culminates in a grand entrance into the beautiful and historic church.

Lush, ethereal harmonies and dazzling array of exotic and period instruments will see the Mediaeval Baebes weaving their magic and exalting the true spirit of Christmas once again.

Joyous music from this classical chart-topping choir will showcase well-known Christmas carols and traditional folk songs, alongside tracks from their latest seasonal album ‘MydWynter.’ And, with captivating storytelling uncovering origins and folklore hidden in the lyrics, the spirited choral music will also include innovative settings of ancient and romantic poetry too.

The Mediaeval Baebes are one of the most successful female-led, early music and folk ensembles in Europe. Over the years, the Mediaeval Baebes have released eleven studio albums and won an Ivor Novella Award for their performance on the BBC serialization ‘The Virgin Queen.’ They have also received two Emmy nominations and a Royal Television Society award as the featured artist alongside composer Martin Phipps, for the TV theme tune of ITV’s hit show ‘Victoria.’

In 2023 The Mediaeval Baebes collaboration with Orbital’s ‘Ringa Ringa’ enjoyed number 6 status in the album charts. And, their unique siren call was invited to collaborate with TikTok lockdown sensation The Wellermen, as part of their ‘Explorations’ remix album.

Come join the Mediaeval Baebes and be immersed in glorious merriment. Tickets are now available from at a cost of £27.50 each and £12.50 for a child. 

Doors open at 7pm. The concert will commence at 7.30pm, break for a short interval and close at 9.30pm.
