At Christmas, Voices Across Time embarked on their ‘Care Home Tour’ that coincided with the release of their new 4-part radio show on Christmas Day. This tour was part of their community outreach project which was established last year to bring the work, skills and expertise of VaT to different environments in the local community. The radio show had been adapted from their 2017 Christmas show, Christmas Across Time, and was recorded in June 2018 with BBC’s Ninth Wave Audio production company.
The 4-part series follows the evolution of Christmas and takes the listener on a journey from the banning of Christmas at the time of the Puritans, to Scrooge in a Victorian Christmas time, arriving at the Christmas day truce in the Great War and finishing with a 1950’s Christmas and the battle for the Christmas no. 1. Voices Across Time had the most incredible week bringing the show to life in 10 different care homes across the county and are already planning next year’s tour!
