Maureen Taylor - ‘How the Tudors Celebrated Christmas’

Monday 5th December 2016

We enjoy our Christmases, and so did the Tudors.  They involved heaps of fun and ribaldry, but also had a huge element of friendship and commitment to family (no matter how distant), and to charity for those less well off or ill. They sang and drank, made merry, danced, sang, and used their imaginations.  They were also deeply religious; so the birth of Christ was taken very seriously.  There are similarities with our Christmases, but also great differences; find out what they were like. 

Entry free, but please arrive early to be sure of a place.
