On hearing that the Christmas Social was being cancelled due to Covid restrictions, Stuart Orme kindly volunteered to talk about Christmas in the time of the Republic. Stuart’s talk, ‘Did Cromwell Ban Christmas’ is set to reveal if this was actually true or another mythical tale about the strict control that Cromwell exercised over everyone’s lives. The talk will be given via Zoom, enabling all members to join in with our festive cheer, albeit from the comfort of your own armchair. Pour yourself a drink, open up the box of mince pies and join us for an interesting evening finding out about the festive season in the 17th Century.
Details about the Zoom talk will be sent out to all our members nearer the date of the 15th.
Visitors are welcome to join us on the evening, for information on how to access the Zoom meeting, please email David on firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and email details.
