Lost Traditions of Medieval Christmas Rediscovered

Lost Traditions of Medieval Christmas Rediscovered

Details

This is your chance to discover the hidden history of Christmas in medieval York at the beautifully decorated townhouse, Barley Hall.

As today, celebrations during the Christmas period in the Middle Ages were both social and religious occasions. For the wealthier households in the city there were also certain obligations that had to be fulfilled, as a medieval Christmas was not just about family, but about the community too.

Join the lady of the house, Joan Snawsell of Barley Hall, as she prepares her household to welcome the great and the good of York into her home for the festive season. Expect to see much greenery and colour as you are transported back in time to explore the beautifully decorated rooms of Barley Hall, each dressed to reflect the different activities that would have taken place in the home and around the city in Lady Snawsell’s time.

This is a unique and colourful Christmas experience in York, so come, make yourself at home at Barley Hall this winter.

The Lost Traditions of a Medieval Christmas Rediscovered is included in your admission price to Barley Hall.
