A Carnival Calendar
Barton upon Humber
From the riotous pre-Lent carnivals of medieval Europe to the midwinter revelry of the Lord of Misrule. The Carnival Band take us through the year, imaginatively weaving folk, historical and contemporary strands from England and abroad into a rich tapestry of seasonal celebration. Themes of climate, nature, tradition, migration, love and loss are explored with catchy ballads, barn-storming dance tunes and settings of texts ranging from the Middle Ages to the present.
