Whilst the main 2017 Southwell Music Festival was in August, it is making a seasonal appearance at Southwell Minster on 22 December 2017. The festival's professional choir, Southwell Festival Voices will be conducted by the festival's artistic director Marcus Farnsworth in a progamme of seasonal music from mediaeval to modern, Hildegard von Bingen to Irving Berlin, with traditional carols alongside contemporary classics. They will be joined by the actor David Oakes, currently best known for his portrayal of Prince Ernest in ITV’s hit drama, Victoria. Oakes will be reading a selection of poetry and prose including works by John Betjeman and Charles Dickens.
