Tudor Christmas

Friday 15 November at 7.30
“How the Tudors Celebrated Christmas”
with Maureen Taylor

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. They sang and drank, made merry, danced, and used their imaginations. There are similarities with our Christmases, but also great differences; find out what they were like.
