Music from 600 years of human history will be coming to the Joy Mead Cloister in Farthingstone tomorrow (Friday)

The concert starts at 8pm and will encompass songs and music from Medieval times up to the First World War.

The band Blast from the Past use an extensive range of authentic instruments and perform in costumes of the relevant period.

The show covers 600 years of music in a concert lasting 90 minutes.

Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes and jokes, Blast from the Past paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and the commonplace.

The show combines the vigour of the medieval period, the musical intricacy of the Renaissance, the grandeur of the Baroque and the pomp and bombast of Victoriana.

Add to that the wit of Blackadder and 1066 And All That and the stage is set for a veritable musical feast!
