Merry Christmas

Today the salon doors close for an extended Christmas break as my rakish colonial gent and I devote ourselves to the festivities and finishing books! Normal service shall be resumed with a brand new post on soon after the new year!

I hope you have a wonderfully merry Christmas, however you choose to spend it; if you have a hankering for some 18th century festive cheer, do read my story of Silent Night, and I wish you a most pleasant few days. 

In the meantime, if you're looking for a most theatrical Christmas gift, I am thrilled to announce that we are bringing An Evening with Jane Austen to Wellington College on 28th January 2018, and tickets can be purchased here.

Christmas Cheer in Yorkshire

I'll be serving some Christmas cheer at Almondbury Library tomorrow at 7.30pm
I'll have some tales of 18th century royal Christmases, as well as the story of a famed carol and an account of a decadent Georgian feast to remember. There'll be music from Just Brass, festive refreshments and an open mic to share your own Christmas tales.
£2 on the door, for Almondbury Library Friends Association.
