A 17th-century Christmas
November 22, 2021 7:15 PM - 9:00 PM
by Tim Healey; this talk commences at 8:00pm.
This talk shows a vibrant portrait of Christmas in a turbulent age, describing Lords of Misrule, Twelfth Night revels, wassails, Boar’s Head feasts, frost fairs on the frozen Thames – and the Puritan ban on Christmas itself.
Tim Healey is a writer and broadcaster who has presented many programmes on BBC Radio 3 and 4. He is a frequent contributor to the Oxford Times colour magazine, Oxfordshire Limited Edition, and leads the 17th-century costume band, the Oxford Waits.
