At last it feel like Christmas! Nothing puts me in the spirit for Christmas more than our seasonal festive visit to Little Moreton Hall. I look forward to it every year and we always go when Piva are performing their wonderful music. I thought you might like to visit too!
A warm wassail cup of spiced apple punch greets you as you enter the courtyard
Where the jester prances and teases with his merry japes
Inside Piva are singing seasonal songs 16th century style and playing a wonderful selection of instruments like crumhorns, hurdy gurdies, viols and shawms.
Their spirited galliards get your feet tapping on the ancient flagstones
The tables are groaning with seasonal, festive food including maids of honour, marchpane cake and fruits, jumbles and spiced prunes.
This year the whole house was open and decorated for Christmas
A choir were singing carols in the long gallery and there was story telling in the chapel too
We missed the crowning of the Lord of Misrule but found another little lord causing a stir when we popped back to look at the musical instruments. He had his eye on those bag pipes!
A perfect end to our visit!
I hope you all have a wonderful, peaceful and joyous Christmas.
