Revel with a beloved king, a mysterious woodland queen, a pair of fools, and an unexpected guest. As the Winter Solstice calls us all together, meet in a special place that straddles the majestic and the mythical realms. The townspeople gather with court and forest folk, new and old traditions find common ground, and a deeper community emerges. Find the true heart and spirit of the holiday season and bid goodbye to the old year while celebrating the birth of the new.
Amidst it all, enjoy rousing traditional music, powerful medieval songs, ethereal chants, seasonal carols, rollicking tunes on early instruments, familiar rounds, folk and courtly dances, a madcap “12 Days of Christmas,” the eerily hypnotic Abbots Bromley horn dance, a topsy-turvy “Lord of Misrule,” and an evocative mummers’ play.
Be a part of this one-of-a-kind evening of seasonal celebration and merriment. Sing along and dance in the aisles! Join the cast of over 100, ages 8 to 85, plus the over 10,000 people who make Christmas Revels part of their holiday tradition each December!
