    Magpie Lane Xmas Concerts

    Afternoon and evening concerts: 3.30 and 7.30 p.m.

    Holywell Music Room, Holywell Street, Oxford OX1 3BN 

    Magpie Lane's annual Christmas shows have become something of an Oxford tradition - now in their 24th year.

    "The bill-boards advertising their annual Christmas concert at the Holywell Music Room said 'Sold Out' - yet fans queued in the bitter cold fog in hope of last minute cancellations. Those of us inside were treated to a feast of seasonal carols, wassails, ballads and the second instalment of the Bampton Mummer's play they began last year... A great night and a splendid way to begin the countdown to Christmas Day."

    Helen Peacocke, The Oxford Times  - writing of the 1995 Christmas concert
