A Merry Medieval Christmas
Step in to ‘Christmases Past’ in the company of the Medieval Lords and Ladies of Dalkey Castle. They will fascinate you with the secrets of Christmas: the origins of ‘ the Christmas Box’, ‘the Piggy Bank’, ‘Carol Singing’, the wearing of ‘Christmas Holly’, the fruit laden Christmas Tree.
Savour the delights of an imaginary Christmas Feast prepared by our own resident Medieval Cook. See her prepare the Mince Pies, Butter and Saffron Basted Goose, traditional Humble Pies (from the umbles of deer), Boar’s Head, Hedgehog Pie, and delicious Frumenty. (Be sure to stir it and make a wish!).
Don’t let Christmases Past pass you by! Great Fun Family Day Out!
