A Christmas Miscellany

Christmas is the time of the year for anthologies, and here is a collection of some of the best material to be found, all performed with the gusto that they deserve. Of course there are wonderful moments from Dickens and other classic writers, but here too are the poems and stories which have become much-loved features of the festive season. Favourite carols and traditions are also explained, providing a thoroughly entertaining journey. There will be laughter, of course, but there could be tears, too.
