Event description

Description

Join GML's Dr Madeline Shanahan for a glass of Wassail and Christmas treats, to celebrate the launch of her new book Christmas Food and Feasting, A History.

The book explores the rich story of Christmas food and feasting, tracing the history of how the festive menu evolved and inherited elements of pagan ritual, medieval traditions, early modern innovations, Victorian romanticism, and contemporary commercialism. Check out a preview of the book here.

At our 'Christmas in July' event, Madeline will share intruiging and amusing stories about the history of the festive menu. Christmas themed canapes and drinks will be served.

Books will also be for sale on the night.
