The Thirlings Hall is ready for the mid-winter feast.
It is decorated with evergreens and the Yule log is on the fire. On the shortest day of the year, the Holly King (the image is for indicative purposes ONLY) must battle the Oak King to see who will rule in the coming months.
As he prepares to fight, the Holly king would like to invite you to the Thirlings Hall, to celebrate mid-winter the Anglo-Saxon way. Join our storytellers from ACLE as they tell tales from winters long ago.
This event is most suitable for children aged 5 – 12 and their families. Younger and older children are welcome to attend, however, there will be some mild peril in the storytelling.
The event takes place in the museum building, where craft activities will be available and in the Anglo-Saxon village where, inside our beautiful Thirlings mead hall, we will listen to some legendary storytelling with a warm drink!
