We are able to offer programmes for a wide variety of musical and historical contexts.
In addition, we offer programmes for concerts and illustrated talks for historical and musical societies or other interested groups, both formal and informal.
We can play music from a particular period or location and include demonstrations of the instruments played by the Waites. As part of our performance, we can talk about history of the town bands and the night watches of old England.
We have played at “An Evening with Shakespeare” and at Sheffield Manor Tudor Day. The Waites recently performed a concert of music which would have been familiar to The Pilgrim Fathers, before they sailed off to the New World.
Current Programmes include
Mr Mayors Music
And finally our latest programme
Mr Brewster’s Delight
The Waites have performed at Haddon Hall, Gainsborough Old Hall, Bolsover Castle, Sheffield Manor, Sheffield Cathedral, Doncaster Minster, Doncaster Mansion House, Temple Newsam House, Worksop Priory, and the York Mystery Plays.
We are always happy to develop new programmes or amend existing ones to suit your needs. If you would like to discuss your ideas then do please get in touch with us.
