A Medieval Christmas takes you on a musical journey from the onset of winter through Christmas and into the hope of the new year to come. The Medieval and Renaissance music that accompanies this journey comes mainly from England with a sprinkling of pieces from further across Europe. Interspersed with readings related to the experience of winter and the Nativity, Christmas celebrations and old traditions, Hexachordia captures in music and words the joy that is to be found at this time of the year.

A discount price of £8 for tickets purchased in advance from Graham Pullen Tel 273804 or Stephen Whybrow Tel. 272773

Highway Defects

It is possible for residents to report any Highways Defects, such as potholes and broken road signs directly to Essex County Council via the County’s website.


Both the broken signpost at Horkesley Road Junction and the damaged salt bin at the bottom of Parsonage Hill have been reported.

Shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child collected at St Mary’s Church, Langham. They will be added to boxes donated at Boxted and Langham primary schools and sent off mainly to Eastern Europe.

If you didn’t get round to filling a box there is still time to build one online.
