About the Festival

On December 27, 1975, a small child in the arms of the minister of Plymouth Congregational Church lit the Christ Candle in our sanctuary. This marked the beginning of our Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival tradition. No one knows who first planned the festival procession, but it is a matter of record that it was part of the Christmas celebration at Queen’s College, Oxford, shortly after the founding of the university in 1340.

This festival includes more than 250 Plymouth members and friends and is experienced by 3,000 audience members each year. The six services are free and open to the public. Production costs are paid through the support of generous patrons and freewill offerings.

Truly, this festival is part of Plymouth’s community outreach. There is a wonderful Festival Choir, Orchestra, and Bell Choir, along with a cast and crew of all ages.

All are welcome to participate. Roles are cast in the fall. Festival Choir rehearses on Wednesdays in December. For more information, contact Kara Jaurigue (cast/crew) or Robert Nance (Festival Choir).  Check back for pictures and video as well!
