Bach to Baby Christmas Concert ImageAt the Bach to Baby concert, my true love gave to me: Six tuba notes, five jazz solos, four crotchet beats, three verse repeats, too good to miss, and a trumpet to play middle C! Get in the spirit with our jazz & Christmas classics this season.

Bach to Baby Christmas Concert ImageGather in the windy woods and be regaled with Christmas fairytales by our narrator, the floaty flute! Stories of snowmen Walking in the Air, tales of Tchaikovskys sugar-plum fairies, and many more musical yarns to tell. This flute is a hoot!

About our Christmas concerts

We love this time of year, but it can be pretty hectic for us parents, right?! So to make life a bit easier, here are some top tips about our Christmas concerts.

  1. All are welcome - families members big and small, those who celebrate Christmas and those that dont.
  2. Our Christmas concerts will be a feast of music that celebrates families coming together and all things wintertime, with a sprinkling of sleigh bells and singalong carols throughout - there'll be something for everybody!
  3. Look out for the specific music and musical instruments at your chosen concert when the programmes are announced in early November.
  4. Fancy dress, frolicking and loud singing encouraged, but please note this is not a carol service, or santa's grotto and we can't guarantee the church will have a tree up yet. **sniff**

About the venue

Bach to Baby Docklands Venue ImageJoin us for a Bach to Baby concert in the beautiful Christ Church Parish of the Isle of Dogs which was consecrated in 1857. The church is an integral part of the local community and is dedicated to promoting inclusivity and creativity though a variety of programmes aimed at children, young people, as well as families. Christ Church is just a short stroll from Greenwich through the famous Greenwich Foot Tunnel and also very close to the buzzing Canary Wharf where you can stop for a spot of lunch or some retail therapy! If you're feeling adventurous, why not take a trip to the family favourite Mudchute Farm, which is less than a ten minute walk away!
