Album: Advent Calendar 2011

13 tracks


Description: The content in this album forms part of The University of Nottingham's online Advent calendar 2011. These video and audio programmes revive some unusual stories and seasonal memories from Nottinghamshire and beyond; ranging from Christmas spent as a prisoner of war and digging for victory; to forgotten festive recipes and rare pieces of music performed by our own students. Also included are rarely seen images of Victorian Nottingham residents ice skating on the River Trent — from the record-breaking winter of 1895.
