‘A 17th-century Christmas’.

Thursday, 14 December 2017 - 7:45pm

An entertaining romp through Yuletide celebrations at the time of the English Civil War and Restoration. Wassailing rites, frost fairs, Twelfth Night customs - and the Puritan backlash against Christmas itself – all encompassed with a wealth of colourful PowerPoint images.
