CLASSICAL music enthusiasts can enjoy a Baroque Christmas with a concert in Much Marcle on Tuesday, December 12.

Historic house Hellens will be hosting the highly-acclaimed London Handel Players as the ensemble celebrates the Christmas season with arrangements of arias from Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio.

There will be traditional carols and instrumental works by Praetorius, Frescobaldi, Charpentier, Corelli, Vivaldi and Heinichen.

The concert starts at 7.30pm.

In the meantime, on Saturday, December 9, there will be basket weaving at the house's Haywain barn from 9.30am with colourful willows and a stick handle.
