Country Diary Show
Thirty of the most popular traditional folk songs – including Wild Mountain Thyme; Bushes and Briars; The Seeds of Love and If I was a Blackbird – will take you on a journey through the year in a musical version of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady at St Marys Church Pembridge on Friday 15 October at 7.30pm and Holy Trinity Bosbury on Saturday 16 October at 7pm
Acclaimed London-based acapella group Broomdasher celebrate Country Diary author Edith Holden’s 150th birthday this year with a tribute show touring picturesque rural churches and raising funds for them.
This 90-minute musical brings the diary nostalgically to life with songs reflecting the farming seasons and holidays like Mayday and Christmas. There’s also a live CD of the show and you can join in with choruses too
Edith’s 1906 Country Diary sold seven million copies when it was published in 1977 and is still the all-time Sunday Times Booklist chart topper, holding number one spot for 65 weeks. This 90-minute musical brings it nostalgically to life with songs reflecting the farming seasons and holidays like Mayday and Christmas.
The show is on a national tour and audiences have said “Joyful and uplifting, just what we need after the past 18 months of gloom. A wonderful night out”.
