Going The Rounds

At Christmas time the lanes around Hardy's birthplace echo to traditional Dorset carols as the Thomas Hardy Society and musicians 'The Madding Crowd' re-enact 'Going the Rounds' from 'Under the Greenwood Tree'.

As she follows the performance around the original locations, local writer and broadcaster Claire Kendall-Price, discovers how traditional customs, places and people feature in the novel during this seasonal celebration of Thomas Hardy's Wessex.
