Cromwell and Christmas
11:00-12:00, Sunday 6th December. £5.00
Dr Sara Read and Dr Catie Gill will investigate Puritan attitudes to Christmas, in order to understand the Commonwealth period, and especially Oliver Cromwell's attitudes to the yule-tide holiday. Did Cromwell really cancel Christmas? We'll find out. Drawing on pro and anti-Christmas pamphlets we'll explore how the pubic reacted to the restrictions that came into force around how Christmas should be celebrated. A fun talk for all the family.
