Bach to Baby Christmas Family Concert
Festive Fanfare

Featuring Jo Harris, trumpet & Alan Gout, piano

So sweet a sound you won't forget, while Sugar-Plum Fairies dance so fair, the singing of a lone trumpet, with snowmen walking in the air. Gather round this magical midwinter with sonorous sonatas and songs from Bernstein, Blake, and the greats!

Doors open at 10.00am. Concert lasts for about an hour.

Flexi-tickets and giftcards are NOT valid for this concert.

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

Situated right in the heart of Oxford on the busy shopping street of Cornmarket, St. Michael's was originally built in the Middle Ages. The Saxon tower, which dates from around 1050, is predicted to be the oldest surviving structure in Oxford. It contains Elizabethan silver, a 19th century chiming clock and the prison doors of the Oxford Martyr's! After enjoying some music, climbing the tower is an absolute must for some unrivalled views of the city!

St. Michael's is the City Church of Oxford and just a stone's throw away from the university campus and the historic Covered Market, which offers only the best in local crafts, food and drink.
