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 cathedral.

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 and one of their members, Josephine Ravenheart, is from Truro itself.

Over the years, the Mediaeval Baebes have released 11 studio albums and won an Ivor Novella Award for their performance on the BBC serialization ‘The Virgin Queen.’
