Nothing says Christmas like a good jig. Or a lively reel. Or a foot-stomping, eclectic mix of internationally inspired Celtic music. Rant Maggie Rant returns to the Hall for its Frost and Fire concert, an event that’s becoming a holiday tradition. “I think Celtic music lends itself very well to this season because of its connection to hearth and home, and kitchens and kitchen parties,” said Glen Dias, frontman for the Stratford-based trio.
Owing to its agrarian roots, Celtic culture is also closely linked to the seasons, the solstices and the equinoxes, he noted, and that’s a big part of the appeal of Celtic music at Christmas time.

Ho ho ho, every year we like to share the festive season with the community by lighting the hall and Christmas tree between the hall and the church. Join us at 7 pm outside for the Lighting of the Lights, then move inside to share some hot chocolate, cookies and entertainment. This year the dance troupe have planned a lovely performance for you to enjoy. As always we conclude the evening with a carol sing and if we sing loud enough we may receive a visit from jolly old Saint Nick himself.
