Christmas- So Hallowed and Gracious a Time: Holiday Preparations at Agecroft Hall
Time & Location
About The Event
Meet Simkin, the House Steward at Agecroft Hall, as he prepares for Christmas; a time of merriment and misrule! During the holiday season, the household is preparing for two balls: one for the gentry family and guests, and one for the servants. The steward is responsible for the details, from hiring staff to making sure the food is just right. John White, a UK based performance historian, brings Simkin to life in Agecroft’s Great Hall.
