Medieval Carols

Jeremy Summerly

From the first Christmas song by a 12th-century Northumbrian hermit, through the earliest surviving Christmas carol of the mid-14th-century, to the heyday of the carol in 15th-century England, Jeremy Summerly traces the early history of the world’s favourite musical genre with sung illustrations from the St Luke's Carollers of Chelsea. 


The tickets for this event are for guaranteed entry. When all tickets have been allocated, a waiting list is in operation and tickets will be re-allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
