This illustrated talk is a light-hearted investigation of the roots of British 21st century Christmas rituals and traditions. The mid-winter festival from earliest times forms the basis of much that the British now do and David will show how this has changed over the centuries.
An ideal talk for the festive season – and it is always good to have some mulled wine and mince pies after learning of their history.
